The Rounds Selected to Participate in SoCal Tech Highway Digital Health Program



HALIFAX, NS, Nov. 2, 2021 – The Rounds is honoured to announce its acceptance into the SoCal Tech Highway Digital Health Program through a partnership with the Government of Canada and Nex Cubed.

Nex Cubed’s second cohort of the SoCal Tech Highway Digital Health Program features five high-growth Canadian Digital Health companies including The Rounds, Bio Conscious Technologies Inc., Mercku, Vaultt, and Hexoskin, each interested in expanding their business to the U.S. Market. 

Through the SoCal Tech Highway Digital Health Program, each company is required to undergo a series of workshops led by former industry executives. They are also matched with a dedicated Subject Matter Expert to act as a guide to facilitate and learn how to navigate the highly complex, regulated, and intricate healthcare industry in the US. 

“Being accepted into the program is a pivotal milestone for the company,” shares Tim Rice, CEO of The Rounds. “Working with a leading digital health accelerator like Nex Cubed and their talented team is an excellent opportunity for commercial expansion of The Rounds into the US market. To improve global healthcare outcomes by connecting the medical community we must move beyond our borders.”

“Nex Cubed is proud to have The Rounds as part of the SoCal Tech Highway Program. As part of the program, the company has been paired with one of Nex Cubed’s subject matter expert Advisors to guide the team to commercial success when entering the US healthcare market. The Rounds shows significant promise due to their past successes in Canada and other regions. Tim (Rice) and Holly (Bond), CEO and CSO respectively, are experts in their own right and the entire Nex Cubed team is excited to watch them grow,” shared Nick Phillips, Program Manager at Nex Cubed.
