It’s no secret around 80% of startups die after two years, due to lack of experience and funding. Accelerator programs get hundreds of applications and the majority of companies don’t even get a chance to present their solution in person. At INFUSE you can increase those odds. By getting feedback from the decision makers, you can gain visibility, make new valuable contacts and increase you chances to get funding.
Three startups pitching will be chosen:
– one will get shortlisted for Startupbootcamp, which gives accepted teams mentorship and 15.000 euros,
– one will get shortlisted for Grants4Apps, which gives accepted teams mentorship and 50.000 euros,
– one more developed will get a booth at MEDICA Trade Fair in Düsseldorf in November, at FTR4H Lab&Lounge in the US Pavilion!
The commercial price of a spot in the Future for Health Lab & Lounge at MEDICA is 3.000 USD. Future for Health (FTR4H) is a global Think Tank on Digital Health.
