Spanish READi partners are supporting ‘The healthStart Program’ initiative amongst the cluster SMEs

The madri+d Foundation of the Madrid Regional Government along with the Hospital Platform for Healthcare Innovation ITEMAS launch healthStart. This Acceleration Program helps early-stage and high-tech projects conceived by patient demands at care settings and designed by clinicians at Hospitals, get the strategic, operational, and financial support they need to transform ideas and prototypes into products and companies with the potential to impact healthcare globally.

 

Out of twenty projects, 10 were selected this year to access the acceleration scheme. During the 6 month, in-person program, mixed teams of MDs, PhDs, engineers, managers, etc, are matched and work towards getting resources to push the projects to their next stage of maturation. The projects selected receive 200+ hours of lectures, high-level networking and teamwork, mentorship from industry leaders, and gain access to partners, advisors and sales leads and pitching to companies and investors.
