Is it for me?

The programme targets international teams – from EIT Health and Regional Integration Scheme (RIS) countries – who are solving a healthcare-related problem and have already built at least an initial prototype. Our High School Partnership programme allows teams from three partnering high schools who do not have a prototype to participate in some of the programme.

The programme

The programme will offer a six-month-long acceleration for candidates with an entrepreneurial mindset who want to develop their personal and team business competencies and explore and develop their health-related business ideas. HVL Budapest offers weekly training sessions, coaching and a Europewide network (EIT Health and RIS countries), through which start-ups can reach out to crucial partners.

Each monthly workshop consists of a teaching session with thematic presentations on hard-to-attain knowledge, including Regulations in the Healthcare Sector, Health Data Protection and Early-Stage Financing. These are provided by our expert coaches and through intensive one-on-one coaching sessions with business coaches who are experienced in building a company. 

Participants will acquire the knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to develop the strategic, organisational, networking and financial basis of a growth-oriented firm.
