About the accelerator program
The startup program is conducted by INiTS Universitäres Gründerservice Wien GmbH, Vienna‘s higtech incubator who worked with health startups since 2002. The main objective of the workshops in the acceleration program is to connect startups with mentors and industry experts. Together, they work on their challenges, focusing on important topics in the healthcare industry such as regulatory affairs or fundraising. One of the highlights of the program will be the participation at the Health.Pioneers (October), including privileged access to closed events, networking opportunities with successful startup founders, CEOs of key healthcare companies and selected investors. The program currently consists of four “Sprint Workshops”, runs 100 days (start September 2019) and takes place in Vienna. Mostly remote, subsidies for travel expenses available. Selected startups do not give away shares but are given opportunities to chose.
