Program

 

Leveraging our deep expertise in shaping, operating, and advising accelerator programs together with our profound digital health knowledge, we are establishing the leading Italian acceleration program entirely focused on innovation and transformation in the digital health sector.

 

The Program in short

 

The 12-week program will be delivered over 5 months, in a hybrid format, combining on-site activities with online sessions and tailored to each team.

 

The curriculum will be composed of lectures, workshops, 1 to 1 expert mentoring session and work on partner cooperation projects and Proof Of Concepts (POCs). Each startup will be assigned to an end-to-end Mentor to help navigate the program, set goals and track progress.

 

 

The program is structured in sprints covering 5 key areas:
