Exciting innovations are challenging the status quo across health and medicine in areas like biotech, health IT, mHealth, life sciences, health tech, and more. TEDMED celebrates the ideas behind this progress in a program called The Hive, which is dedicated to celebrating the power of imagination and human potential that emerges from our collective, “hive” mind.
Transformative startups and the inspiring entrepreneurs that power them are an important part of the TEDMED community and conversation. In previous years, “The Hive” manifested as a showcase of innovation nested within TEDMED’s immersive and informal social spaces and as “short talks.” This year at TEDMED 2015, we will integrate The Hive companies and their leaders within the community activities and the larger stage program for a more collaborative experience.
See below the exciting curators, companies and entrepreneurs who joined us in TEDMED 2013 and TEDMED 2014.
Each year, the curation of The Hive and the startups that join us supports a collaboration between TEDMED and it's community. In 2015 the startups that join us will be more closely integrated with the overall stage program and delegate experience, ensuring their stories are shared with the broadest community. In keeping with our approach in designing our program, the Editorial Advisory Board will take the place of a separate team of curators.

The Hive at TEDMED 2014 and TEDMED 2013 was honored to benefit from the wisdom and intellectual generosity of a deeply experienced team of Curators. Each Curator provided their guidance in the review and selection of transformative startups selected to showcase at these events. To this task they brought the multi-disciplinary perspectives of social influencers, venture capitalists, inventors, proven leaders in design and entrepreneurship and more. Each is a seasoned disruptor who has made a powerful impact in health and medicine. Each represents an organization that is committed to creating a healthier world.
