XLerateHealth named eight companies to participate in its flagship program including NBS

The health care accelerator, based in Louisville with a second office in Flint, Michigan, will kick off its 2023 cohort Thursday, July 13, according to a news release. The program will culminate with a virtual demo day Oct. 5.

“We are pleased to welcome this year’s cohort,” said Jackie Wilmot, CEO and co-founder of XLH. "An important element of our mission is to foster equality and inclusivity relative to the founders and types of companies we work with. We are especially excited that over 75% of the startups are founded and led by women and/or minority entrepreneurs. The participating companies represent a mix of medical device, digital health, and drug development companies."

Only one Kentucky startup is in the Louisville cohort this year: Lexington-based NonBinary Solutions.

The company, founded by CEO Mandy Ralston, standardizes Clinical Decision Support Systems for autism service providers with the intent of dramatically improving the quality and efficacy of decision-making by offering a systematic and standardized approach to treatment planning.

In February, KY Inno reported the company has raised $90,000, including a $50,000 investment from Keyhorse Capital. Reporter Stephen P. Schmidt has more on NonBinary Solutions in this profile.

Other members of the cohort are:

  • Anbiome Life Sciences (Cheshire, Connecticut) a biotech startup specializing in fermentation-based technology and the development of a novel bioactive compound that transforms the management of cancer therapy side effects.

  • EmpoweRx (Nashville, Tennessee) is a tech enabled platform that transforms health care staffing by empowering clinicians through business education courses to effectively start and run their own practice.

  • FreezeNitTM (Boston) is an effective eco-friendly treatment for a growing and persistent pediatric problem — drug resistant "super lice." With a single treatment session, FreezeNit eliminates the need for messy creams, pesticides or prescription treatments.

  • Hidoc Dr. (Sheridan, Wyoming) is an AI-enabled global networking and learning platform for physicians. The company is transforming clinician collaboration by offering evidence-based medical second opinions and case discussions.

  • Lung Technologies (Seattle) a pre-surgical digital platform that tackles the common and costly post-surgical complications of Pulmonary Atelectasis and Deep Vein Thrombosis by addressing poor venous blood flow in the lower legs and the lungs prior to surgery.

  • (Washington, D.C.) a digital health company that provides Black patients access to culturally sensitive quality mental health care by delivering virtual clinical care, immersive therapy and breakthrough trauma tools.

  • MNDYRR Technologies (Philippi, West Virginia) a teletherapy and social network platform addressing the pediatric/adolescent mental health crisis by helping child welfare and education professionals better understand and connect with traumatized youth.
