May 28, 2019

MORRISTOWN, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 28, 2019--

Hoy Health LLC announces that Tampa Bay Wave, an entrepreneurial hub helping tech companies advance their businesses, has officially named Hoy Health among its 2019 selection of diverse companies for its TechDiversity Accelerator program. Funded by the Nielsen Foundation, the program empowers tech entrepreneurs that are 51 percent owned or operated by a minority, woman, veteran or lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender person, or a combination thereof, to build, launch, and grow their businesses into successful ventures.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Hoy Health as one of the 11 companies to join the second cohort in the TechDiversity Accelerator Program, powered by the Nielsen Foundation,” said Linda Olson, Founder, President and CEO, Tampa Bay Wave. “Hoy Health and its innovative solution to healthcare products and services further outline just how disruptive our second cohort is in the technology space. We’re looking forward to assisting with the company’s growth throughout the program.”

Tampa Bay Wave plans to help at least 50 tech startups develop into “fundable” ventures and enable at least five tech startups to reach break-out success. According the Tampa Bay Wave spokesperson, this year’s roster of companies comes from across the nation and encompasses a slew of industries.

“We’re pleased to be part of this worthy program, which includes such a diverse array of companies and comes on the heels of Hoy Health being named one of the ‘Fierce 15’ for 2019 by the editors of Fierce Healthcare for the most innovative health care companies across the United States,” says Mario Anglada, CEO, Hoy Health. “We were selected based upon the value of our platform to offer underserved consumers, including under- and underinsured Hispanics, with access to affordable care, medications and chronic condition support programs that they can purchase for themselves or their loved ones.”

Anglada says that the program will help Hoy Health to better serve Hispanics and other underserved populations that not only face healthcare barriers in the United States, but also experience sub-optimal healthcare because of cultural and language differences.

“We focus on solutions to address these disparities by dramatically streamlining access to quality health and wellness products, enabling individuals to get low cost medications and helping them to better manage chronic health conditions,” he concludes.
