Bootcamp HealthTech start-ups imec.istart PwC

Health RampUp is an intense bootcamp for HealthTech start-ups. During an 8-month program, we’ll help you – together with experienced entrepreneurs and domain experts – validate your business idea so you are able to raise your first round of funding.​ This program is meant for any entrepreneur, with an early innovative HealthTech idea, who is looking for support and wants to take the next step.

Bootcamp for HealthTech entrepreneurs

Spread over 8 months, we'll dive - together with a small cohort of other starting companies - in topics as Design Thinking, Business Modelling, Business Planning, Marketing, Legal, IP, Pitching and so on. At the end, you'll go through an intense coaching day, after which you'll be ready to pitch before a professional jury. 

This program is the perfect preparation for the imec.istart program, as your idea will be vetted with imec experts as well.

Afterwards, you are ready to start accelerating your business and collect your first financing. So, do not hesitate to apply if you have identified your idea.
