Healthbox, a Chicago, IL-based company that supports innovation and entrepreneurship in healthcare, is launching a business accelerator program in the Boston/Cambridge area.
Up to ten New England-based healthcare startups will be selected for the three-month program and will receive $50k in seed capital, access to a mentor network of industry experts, collaborative workspace and strategic guidance.
The program launches this August and will conclude with a high-profile conference in November, where each participant will be able to pitch to an audience of investors and healthcare leaders from across the country.
Led by Founder Nina Nashif, Healthbox hosted its first program in Chicago earlier this year, which was supported by strategic partners that included Boston-based HLM Venture Partners, as well as Ascension Health, BlueCross BlueShield Venture Partners, California HealthCare Foundation, Merge Healthcare, Merrick Ventures, Sandbox Industries and Walgreens.
Healthbox will continue to expand its partnerships and will be working with additional leading organizations as it continues to grow.
