ABOUT US

OUR VISION

Health Hub Vienna is a platform for open innovation in healthcare. Pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, private and public insurance companies, healthcare suppliers and start-ups all work together to develop new, holistic and patient-centric solutions. The acceleration program is managed by INiTS, Vienna’s high-tech incubator with an over 15-year track record of successfully developing start-ups in the life sciences.

Customized support for start-ups will be available during the critical steps involved in anchoring products and services in a complex healthcare system, driven by a large number of stakeholders. For example, we will significantly accelerate certification processes, fulfillment of regulatory requirements (e.g. data protection), and fundraising, all of which currently slow down life-science, digital-health and med-tech start-ups and innovation in healthcare in general.

PROGRAM

THE ACCELERATION PROGRAM

The startup program is conducted by INiTS Universitäres Gründerservice Wien GmbH, Vienna‘s higtech incubator who worked with health startups since 2002.INiTS is one of the world’s best academic incubators and has assisted several highly successful founding teams, particularly in the field of life sciences, such as Dutalys or mySugr (acquired by Roche in 2014), Marinomed or Medicus, recently awarded Europe‘s TOP2 health-tech startup by EIT Digital.
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 4GameChangers Festival (April) and Pioneers Festival (May), including privileged access to closed events, networking opportunities with successful startup founders, CEOs of key healthcare companies and selected investors.
Our program currently consists of four “Sprint Workshops”.
The program runs 4 months (March until June 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.
