How to Select a Healthcare Innovation Hub, Accelerator or Incubator

If you work in healthcare, whether you’re working on the frontlines or a scientist or technologist looking to advance science and systems designed to improve lives, chances are you’re all too familiar with how confusing it can be to navigate the industry. Countless healthcare startups rise and fall each year for any number of reasons, including poor leadership, a lack of real-time access to patients, a lack of funding or simply a failure to truly understand their target demographics. With the odds often stacked against their nascent startups, technologists often require some guidance when it comes to selecting a healthcare innovation hub, accelerator or incubator, as each comes with its own unique strengths. The question is - “Where to start?!”
