What you gain from the program

The Three-Path Approach

We get you to the next level through action-based sprints

Traction-oriented development

We optimize startups for a traction path. This means we define your progress in relation to how much you are able to engage with customers.
Through the sprints, expert interactions and personalized coaching we strive to help you achieve the six-month goal we help you set thereby getting you on the right track. 

Our experts show you what you have to look out for on the HC market

Deep Industry Knowledge

Through interacting with our experts, you will gain insight into a multitude of Healthcare specific business practices and technological solutions. Tap into the expertise of our industrial and academic partners, that is hard to come-by when building a startup.

Thriving International Community

An International Network

More than 2/3 of the companies at Health Venture Lab come outside of Budapest. This international community helps you grow outside of your own borders and find valuable support in foreign markets. Our experience dictates that some of the most crucial knowledge is attained through interactions with other founders who are going through similar struggles.
