CTA Match for Digital Health and Accessibility​

CTA is running a special-edition of the Match program specifically for digital health and accessibility investors and startups. This program will bring together innovative digital health startups with investors and corporations seeking equity or partnership positions.

For digital health and accessibility investors, tell us about your investment theses and the types of startup you’re seeking. 

For startups, complete this questionnaire and tell us about your digital health and accessibility startup – your company profiles will be shared with relevant investors. ​

How It Works:

The matching process is based on several criteria including industry category and company focus, stage of the company's development, and alignment with the investment thesis of the participating investors and corporations. This ensures the matchmaking process is tailored to the specific needs and goals of each participant, maximizing the chances of successful connections.

Any CTA member tech company seeking investment funding or partnership is welcome to submit for the virtual CTA Match. There is no fee for CTA Members to participate. The submissions process will close at midnight PT Friday, May 31. Participants will be notified of any matches for which they have been selected by June 28, 2024.

“The CTA Match event provided an effective and efficient way to meet with the most innovative startups at CES 2023. With an opportunity to review pre-curated companies in my firm’s area of investment interest and dual-opt in match system, my colleague and I were able to meet a slate of companies that were both interesting to our firm and who were interested in meeting us. Bravo to the CTA for a program that brings together members of their community to fuel the global innovation ecosystem.”
Eric Hsia Translink Capital

"CTA Match has been of incredible value to our software startup. It was an excellent opportunity to be matched with investors that were not on our radar. Getting matched has been smooth and easy for us, as CTA did most of the heavy lifting in vetting startups and matching them with potential investors. I recommend CTA Match to anyone looking for new investors in North America.”
