Finalists selected for 2022 Timmy Awards, and public voting will determine the winning startups
Rocket VR Health is a 2022 Best Tech Startup Finalist in the 8th Annual Timmy Awards, selected by the local tech community and Tech in Motion. The awards program is dedicated to celebrating the top tech workplaces across North America. With regional winners decided by voting here, it will be the tech community who decides if Rocket VR Health will represent Boston in the North American round, judged by industry leaders from companies like Netflix, Salesforce, and PayPal.
“Our Best Tech Startup category is one of the most competitive, with such innovation and growth happening in the tech industry,” said Lindsay Lewis, Director of Marketing at Tech in Motion creator, Motion Recruitment. “We are excited to have such progressive finalists to represent the tech community.”
This year Tech in Motion has implemented exciting new elements to the Timmys, starting with the first-ever Startup Pitch Off during nominations, where seven startups competed to advance to the finalist round. Additionally, Tech in Motion has added break-out sessions to the night of the event, themed around the categories of the evening by top leaders in the industry, to make the experience truly engaging.
Rocket VR Health aims to revolutionize cancer patients’ mental health by using VR technology and is committed to making mental healthcare more effective, accessible, and fun. The company is working to deliver an innovative product based on next-generation digital therapeutics by leveraging proven clinical programs and ultra-realistic 3D environments, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) games, and VR-enhanced meditation. By developing recent partnerships with leading cancer institutions like Massachusetts General Hospital, Penn Medicine, and the University of Calgary, the company is leveraging proven treatment protocols and working with the brightest minds in cancer psychosocial care.
Rocket VR Health is the first company to pioneer the use of immersive VR therapy for cancer patients’ mental healthcare. The company’s on-demand therapy programs are designed to treat cancer-related distress using validated intervention programs and allow patients to connect with peers and family while also attending group therapy sessions within the company’s metaverse support community. Rocket VR Health is committed to evidence-based treatments and increasing access to its therapies, and is pursuing rigorous testing of its solutions for FDA 510K approval in order to have its therapies be covered by insurance, which would bring down the cost and further increase accessibility.
In addition to Best Tech Startup, the 2022 Timmys will also be handing out awards in five other categories: Best Tech for Good, Best Tech Enterprise Employer, Best Tech Work Culture, Best Workplace for Diversity, and Best Tech Manager. As voting kicks off to determine the Regional Winners, ending October 5, the local tech community can vote once daily for who they want to move on to the North American Awards.
On November 10th, the 2022 Timmy Awards Ceremony will be a digital experience streaming on Brand Live, with on-air intros and acceptance speeches from this year’s best tech startups, managers, and employers.
