Aussie startup picked for prestigious hospital accelerator

CancerAid has been selected to join an accelerator program at the Cedar-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles.

Sydney startup CancerAid is already the number one cancer app on the Apple Store in Australia, the UK and the USA, and is used by more than 40,000 cancer patients, their carers and clinicians in 24 different countries. The app is also available for Android.

Now CancerAid has become the first Australian startup to be selected for the Cedar-Sinai Accelerator Powered by Techstars.

Cedar-Sinai Accelerator is a three-month program that provides mentoring from leading Cedars-Sinai physicians and executives from Cedars-Sinai and Techstars, a $120,000 investment, and access to Techstars’ network of investors, mentors, alumni and corporate partners.

CancerAid was founded by Dr Nikhil Pooviah and Dr Raghav Murali-Ganesh from the Chris O'Brien Lifehouse cancer hospital in Sydney. 

“CancerAid is already the number one cancer app in the US, UK and Australia, and we look forward to deepening our connections with the US market through the help of Cedars-Sinai and Techstars,” said Dr Pooviah.
