Our Team

Healthbox Is Your Trusted Innovation Partner

Healthbox launched as one of the first healthcare-focused accelerator programs, with the goal of helping entrepreneurs navigate the complex industry and grow successful businesses. Through our programs, we have sourced over 2,500 early-stage companies from around the world and engaged closely with more than 160 companies, gaining insights into entrepreneurial trends, business models, and success factors for building sustainable businesses in healthcare. Further, through sourcing and evaluating innovation on behalf of leading industry organizations, our team became equipped with industry context, enabling us to understand which innovations will "work" inside your organization. This dual industry (internal)/market (external) knowledge is what sets us apart from other organizations and continues to drive results with our partners.
