MedReddie Proudly Receives the Prestigious Elevate Women+ Pitch Prize

At MedReddie, we are thrilled to announce a momentous achievement in our journey. Our founder, Kara LeBlanc, has been awarded the inaugural Elevate Women + Pitch Prize at the renowned Elevate Festival, marking a significant milestone for our team and the broader tech community.

This prestigious prize, a $450,000 cash investment, recognizes the innovative strides we have made with our AI-powered platform, which is revolutionizing the healthcare supply chain. Our technology is not just a tool; it’s a beacon of hope for improving patient outcomes and enhancing health system performance. This recognition is a testament to our commitment to excellence and innovation in healthcare technology.

The prize, made up of funds from esteemed angel investors from The Firehood, Women+ Investor Incubator, Forum Ventures, and BDC Capital’s Thrive Lab, was announced at the Elevate Main Stage: Women+ in Tech Day. This platform, surrounded by Canada’s vibrant startup and investor community, was an ideal setting to showcase our vision and the impact of our work.

We, the MedReddie team, are honored to receive such a significant investment. It’s not just a financial boost but a powerful vote of confidence in our mission and capabilities. This investment will catalyze our growth and expansion, allowing us to reach new heights and deliver greater value to the healthcare sector.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes to Claudette McGowan, Danielle Graham, co-founders of The Firehood, and Lisa Zarzeczny, CEO of Elevate, for announcing this award. Their leadership and commitment to championing women in tech, particularly those identifying as women or gender-diverse, is truly inspirational.

We also extend our congratulations to Stephanie Curcio from NLPatent and Jenn Harper from Cheekbone Beauty, who were awarded additional prizes. Their achievements, along with ours, underscore the rich talent and potential within the community of women tech entrepreneurs.

The Elevate Women+ Program, with its focus on increasing access to venture capital for Canadian women entrepreneurs, aligns perfectly with our ethos at MedReddie. We are proud to be part of a movement that is shaping a more inclusive venture capital environment in Canada.

As we celebrate this achievement, we reflect on the journey that brought us here. From the inception of MedReddie, Kara LeBlanc’s vision and leadership have been the driving force behind our success. We are incredibly proud of her and grateful for her relentless pursuit of innovation and excellence.

This award is not just a milestone for MedReddie; it’s a beacon of hope and inspiration for women in technology and entrepreneurship. We are excited for the future, ready to leverage this opportunity to further our mission, and continue breaking barriers in the tech world.

Together, we are stronger, and together, we will continue to elevate and transform the healthcare landscape.
