HealthSprint is a five-month venture builder program personalized for innovation in digital healthcare.
We make time-to-market more efficient by providing dedicated business and technical development, financing, testing, and academic and industry connections.
Pilot & Demonstrate
Demonstrate in commercial scale settings with our partners for field trials and pilot projects to reduce risk and improve market viability.
Capital is fuel. But, winning capital can be quite an odyssey. Having the right existing relationships and knowing where to look is more than half the battle.
We ditch pitch days and instead curate one-on-one “Deal Room” meetings. Entrepreneurs can directly interact with the Arrowhead Innovation Fun, corporate venture groups, banks, investor networks, and foundation and grant experts, to help jump start the fundraising process. We’ll even help you prepare cap tables, projections, forecasts, and grant budgets for financing opportunities.
Oh, and, one team will receive a $20,000 seed investment.
We increase your execution speed by providing pre-negotiated access to a network of manufacturers, technical experts, academic faculty, testing labs, national and corporate partners and comprehensive set of resources and templates designed to aid startups and their founders on the journey from the garage to the global marketplace.
We host weekly meetings and business development experts and partners to pressure test assumptions, further de-risk your business and provide invaluable coaching and introductions.
NSF Lineage & Cash
The first three weeks of the five month program will follow an NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps) training model to test the feasibility of your business idea. Through participation in HealthSprint, you will receive $2,000 in participant support and attain the lineage necessary to compete for $50,0o0 through the national NSF I-Corps program.
We are looking for creative people with innovative ideas.
Here are some hallmarks of each:
People who are passionate and receptive to business advising.
NM-Based Ventures, at any stage, that address a clear customer need, have a fast commercial time-to market deployment, and are scalable and for-profit.
Ideas that fit our digital health themes.
Digital Health Themes
The broad scope of digital health — the use of information and communications technologies to improve human health, healthcare services, and wellness for individuals and across populations — includes categories such as mHealth, health IT, wearable devices, and telehealth and telemedicine. Digital health is empowering us to better track, manage, and improve our own and our family’s health, live better, more productive lives, and improve society. It is also helping to reduce inefficiencies in healthcare delivery, improve access, reduce costs, increase quality, and make medicine more personalized and precise.
mHealth (mobile health) is a general team for the use of mobile phones and other wireless technology in medical care. The most common application of mHealth is the use of mobile phones and communication devices to educate consumers about preventive health care services.
Health IT (health information technology) is the area of IT involving the design, development, creation, use and maintenance of information systems for the healthcare industry.
Wearable technology, wearables, wearable devices, or tech togs are smart electronic devices (electronic device with microcontrollers) that can be worn on the body as implants or accessories.
Telehealth is the use of digital information and communication technologies, such as computers and mobile devices, to access both clinical and non-clinical health care services remotely and manage health care.
