These parallel trends call for rethinking of today’s approaches to both cure and care, and looking deeper into the customer experiences.
Together with Health Valley, the biggest Life Sciences & Health network in the Netherlands, we strive to boost growth of startups who focus on social engagement and healthy living. Today, entrepreneurs get to the forefront as those who can explore multiple new opportunities and technology domains. In order to bridge supply and demand, innovative solutions in Health & Ageing are to be backed by connection to industry, knowledge institutions, hospitals, customers and governments.
Our accelerator is fitted to provide selected startups with launching customers, expert mentoring, growth capital and domain-specific expertise. And Health Valley can launch startups in local and international markets via its connections to multiple affiliated hubs.
Our main drive is to accelerate growth of ventures who focus on future solutions with positive impact. Increased innovation in sectors aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals is key to economic growth. These goals are already reshaping global markets and capital flows, bringing impact businesses to the spotlight and making them stand out in the competition.
