Transforming Healthtech Inventors, Entrepreneurs and Founders

Dundee

Our new HealthTech Accelerator is based in the Dundee Contemporary Arts centre, in partnership with Elevator, Dundee University, NHS in Scotland, Scottish Health Innovations Ltd, and the City of Dundee. We take good people and good ideas and help them to realise their potential on a national and international stage.

What it is 01

  • Elevator's HealthTech Accelerator (HTA) is an intensive, residential 13-week programme that takes a small cohort of inventors, entrepreneurs and founders and helps them to reach major milestones in developing their innovations and companies. The programme is educational (and most would say transformational), but the focus must always be on your business. It starts with a full five-day Bootcamp to introduce you to each other, the expectations of the accelerator and the tools you will find useful later. Programmed content is two days per week for the next 12 weeks, with the remainder of your time devoted to your business.
  • Each week you will discuss your progress as a cohort and help each other to overcome challenges as you meet them. You will also present various aspects of your business to an audience of your peers, sponsors, customers, investors or the public.

what you need 01

  • Your business must be related to health, and you must be prepared to live and work in Dundee for the 13 weeks.
  • You should have taken some steps to demonstrate that the idea is technically and commercially viable. Selection is a competitive process, and we will select the businesses that we think show most promise, best fit with the local eco-system, and are likeliest to benefit from HTA.

...Don't be put off. The point of the accelerator is to help so we don't expect the business to be risk-free or proven.

what well give you 01

  • We don't take equity and we don't charge. In fact, our sponsors may offer up to £50k seed funding to selected participating companies. This allows you to concentrate on the project without being distracted. As the programme progresses you will encounter the wider entrepreneurial eco-system. You will meet angels, VCs, other investors and potential partners. You will also have the opportunity to take part in competitions, bid for grants and attract customers.
  • Every week you will meet as a cohort, and work with a mixture of coaches, practitioners, entrepreneurs, experts in your field, angels, VCs, industry leaders, and partners, potential customers. This bank of experience and expertise is part of the eco-system of Dundee and HTA, giving you access to a unique network that will help you to make the best of your idea and your business.
