About

Rockstart Health Program provides access to the healthcare ecosystem, capital, coaching and investors for entrepreneurs who are looking to change the way things are done in healthcare.

We work with all the founders to balance the team. Adjust their business model for scale and support with high-value customer and investor deals. We ensure our participating startups have access to sufficient funding. Rockstart Health will invest an additional €300k in the best performing startups to help them in their journey to scale. Thanks to our three main events; Health Partner Day, Health Summit and our Demo Day, startups get even more opportunities to close the best investor and customer deals.

We bring you a program that is designed to help startups and our health partners. Run in parallel, there is a full-year startup scale program to drive growth and more deals for our selected startups. And an all-new health leadership program to help our health partners collaborate successfully with startups. By supporting both startups and health partners, we aim to multiply our joined impact.
