Healthcare startups: Here’s your chance to reimagine medicine with Novartis

September 12, 2017

Novartis is a perfect example of a big corporation embracing collaboration, instead of fighting the startups trying to disrupt their market. To do so, Novartis is partnering with Beta-i and Deloitte Digital. Together, we have created techcare, an accelerator looking for startups with innovative technologies, products or services to reimagine the future of medicine.

I am a program manager at Beta-i and have managed other startup programs in the areas of healthcare and insurtech. I know that a company like Novartis, a science-based healthcare company striving to change the practice of medicine, will provide startups with an excellent opportunity. Techcare will allow startups to test and validate their solution, learn more about the industry, and connect you with key decision makers during the one-week Bootcamp.

I have personally seen the direct results accelerators have on startups’ growth. Based on direct feedback from startups of previous accelerators, our programs differ because they are short and intensive. Not wasting entrepreneurs’ time when they need to be elsewhere. They provide direct contact with key decision makers from day one and learnings based on knowledge sharing rather than the standard workshops. In one week, startups take a step back, re-evaluate their business model and bullet-proof their solutions with insightful questions and honest feedback from industry leaders.

Novartis is looking to collaborate with startups to solve the following business challenges:



What’s in it for you?

Mentoring: From Novartis, affiliated healthcare experts (international), and experienced entrepreneurs.

De-risk testing your solution: Speed things up with the help of Novartis. Test and validate your solution with industry experts, focus on problem-solution fit, and tweak and adapt your solution to market needs and clients.

Get relevant intros: Direct access to Novartis network.

Grow beyond borders: Leverage on Novartis International presence.

Power up: Power up your startup by enjoying the joint synergies between Novartis, Deloitte Digital and Beta-i.
