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.

“One thing that stands out is an outgoing readiness of the HHV team to support alumni 1+ years after graduation. Every time I mentioned I needed certain warm intros I received help, and that is truly appreciated.”
Helena Binetskaya

CEO, Co-Founder , Lungpass

“There was a great variety of activities (demoing, compliance workshops, meeting with potential investors) and we received feedback and mentorship from industry experts at an early stage. This makes programs like the HHV so important. Everything was well organized and within a great atmosphere. Meeting with other founders and learn from them were the most important takeaways. We had a chance to speak to Uniqa and other potential partners. I would definitely recommend the program to other start-ups in the DACH-region or Austrian market.”
Tomasz Domino

Chief Operating Officer, Infermedica Sp. z o.o.

“We at SidekickHealth made great progress with the support of the HHV team. The program is very well organized, professional and time efficient. I would advise every health startup with international ambitions to apply. The Health Hub Vienna team did an amazing job and during the program, we accelerated our business significantly. It is highly recommended!”
