A Chattanooga-based company that helps 5.5 million people access health care through text messages won both the Startup of the Year award and the High-Growth Company of the Year award on Thursday.
"Everybody needs and deserves to get care, and this platform enables that," said Kathy Ford, the president and chief product officer for Rhinogram. "There are certainly a lot of challenges happening in health care right now and we're so grateful to be able to contribute to solving some of the problems that exist."
The Startup Awards were part of an annual week-long showcase and celebration of Chattanooga's entrepreneurial community. Startup Week moved online this year.
"It's super exciting for Chattanooga right now because we're really emerging as our own health care IT and health care innovation hub," Ford said during the virtual recognition event.
