Program Structure
The program consist of regular coaching days every Friday, each team assisted by the business coaches that we assign to them. These one-on-one coaching sessions are supplemented by thematic presentations on specific topics, eg.: Healthcare Data Protection, Finance, How to get funding?, etc. Each Friday you will explore and learn about a new concept that will be useful when executing your idea. In addition you can request expert consultations from a wide range of expertise, starting from legal matters to technical issues. Additional special events will provide you with more knowledge on stakeholders in the Healthcare sector, have the chance to network with relevant players and find meaningful partnerships. At the end of the program you will have the chance to pitch your idea in front of a jury, that includes VCs, Academics and Industry leaders. We also organize ‘Venture Weekends’ where individuals who don’t have a team yet have a chance of exploring a Healthcare related business idea and gather a team around it.
