SAN FRANCISCO, April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- HelloMD, the leading digital healthcare platform for medical marijuana patients, announced today that Mattermark.com ranks it first in growth out of 135 companies presented at the recent Launch Festival in San Francisco.
HelloMD was invited to present its strategy to become the first national online retailer of cannabis products, the 'Amazon of Cannabis' at the Launch Festival. Other presenting companies included 135 technology startups selected from high growth industry sectors such as Robotics and Drones, Health and Biotech, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Virtual & Augmented Reality, Smart Home and Enterprise, Consumer and Media, Education and Kids, Cannabis, Financial Technology, Hardware and Food and Water.
In addition to its ranking by MatterMark, HelloMD tied for first place in their cohort of presenting companies by a panel of well-known investors. This news is good timing for HelloMD, since it just launched a capital raising effort on SeedInvest.com which is open to both accredited and non-accredited investors.
MatterMark.com is a subscription service for investors, and ranks companies according to an algorithm of signals including web traffic, team growth, media mentions and others. Investors use MatterMark.com to assess (among other things) how much momentum a company has relative to its peers.
"We did not realize that we were ranked number one," stated Mark Hadfield, HelloMD CEO. "Not until an investor from the audience pointed it out to us. It's great to hear the ranking given that the other presenting companies are all considered 'Best in Class' by the organizers of Launch Festival," he continued.
HelloMD is the leading digital healthcare platform for medical cannabis patients. The service allows for easy, convenient online video access to physicians for medical cannabis consultations, recommendations to qualifying patients, product advice and more.
