London, UK – 21 May 2013 – Connect Digital Health, organisers of the forthcoming Digital Health Forum 2013 (DHF13) to be held in London on 11 June, has launched its ‘Hot 5’ competition. The competition is open to emerging digital health companies, with the five winners gaining free access to the conference to pitch their business ideas to leading digital health investors.

Shortlisted companies will receive an invitation to attend the conference at a 50% discount and the eventual winners will gain free entry with the 50% fee being reimbursed upon the announcement of the Hot 5 winners. Winners also get the opportunity to present at the conference, feedback from the Hot 5 judging panel and an additional £1000 cash prize for the company with the best presentation.

Applicants for the Hot 5 competition need to provide their elevator pitch, a brief market analysis and details of their founders to be eligible. A panel of judges composed of digital health VCs and corporate dealmakers will select the presenting companies. Companies can enter at http://www.dhf13.com/#!hot5-registration/c5kk.
