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.
