Strokes are the fifth leading cause of death in the United States, with someone dying of a stroke every 4 minutes. The risk factors of stroke are tied to several other chronic conditions such as obesity, smoking, and diabetes. The Houston area has a high burden of these conditions. However, Houston is also home to the Texas Medical Center, which includes one of the world’s first Stroke Centers and other world leaders in stroke care. TMC Innovation is seeking start-ups for its fall cohort that will support and continue to further the strides being made in stroke care by our partners in the Texas Medical Center.
