The StartUp Health Education Program for Entrepreneurs will launch in stages over the next two years, and provide a scalable platform that will help educate thousands of emerging health technology entrepreneurs on how to accelerate and scale their businesses by focusing on markets that often don’t have early access to new healthcare technologies.
The long-term initiative will create free resources for startups such as an online curriculum, educational tools and an expert network, and will make it easier for digital health entrepreneurs to develop pilot programs in these underserved communities and build products and services to meet the unique needs of these communities.
Highlights of the StartUp Health Education Program for Entrepreneurs include:
● An open database of needs and opportunities in underserved communities that will be available free to entrepreneurs and startups.
● An advisor network of community experts who will mentor entrepreneurs on emerging business models and the unique opportunities within underserved communities.
● A scalable online curriculum and resource center that will include an educational podcast and video library.
● Ongoing outreach and awareness to underserved communities interested in access to new technologies.
