Health Innovators (HI, 13,000 member community) mission is to become the premier place for digital health tech entrepreneurs to innovate and build businesses that will solve our healthcare issues, improve patient outcomes ,and reduce costs in a meaningful and impactful way. The objective of HI is to develop resources and infrastructures that are necessary to identify early stage opportunities, cultivate and assist healthcare technology startups to create, validate and commercialize ideas.
HI is a community of healthtech innovators, comprised of an ecosystem of clinicians, programmers, investors, product managers, business developers, "techie" doctors and health professionals whose mission is to help turn ideas for improved healthcare into reality. HI fosters entrepreneurship and provides start-up businesses in the healthcare tech sector with mentoring, access to a network of resources and other business services designed to accelerate their success, and create jobs in the Boston metro area and beyond.
By providing access to investment, mentors, industry experts, other like-minded healthtech entrepreneurs and access to funds, HI dramatically improves the chances of startups to succeed.
HI believes that inclusion, diversity and being global are important drivers of innovation. As part of our commitment to increasing the diversity of certain underrepresented participants in high tech companies, especially those interested in providing solutions to our healthcare problems, HI would encourage minority and women to apply to our Coworking/Incubator program or otherwise engage our other services offerings.
