Application to the program is still open and in the first stage ten teams will be admitted into the program.
Each team selected to the program will receive individually tailored coaching and mentoring, as well as access to comprehensive services, from test beds to business and finance support. The teams will join the health sector start-up community and are provided with modern office and coworking facilities at Terkko Health Hub in the Meilahti campus area in Helsinki. Over the course of the program the teams will get valuable opportunities to network with investors, established healthcare industry experts, innovative entrepreneurs, and advisors.
Apart from a minor fee for the office space the incubator services are free for the participants. The incubator does not take any equity in the companies.
