Health Venture Lab Alumni
Your new best friends on your next entrepreneurial journey
Our growing community of alumni are your network of like-minded entrepreneurs from across Europe. After the accelerator is over, we keep in touch with past cohorts, promoting their successes and connecting them with relevant opportunities, long after Demo Day has passed.
What we love about the programme is the training first, it almost feels like we had a hands-on MBA completed during these four months.

Our goal for Reactor was to understand how we can help medical device teams with accelerating the product design. Through the programme, we had the opportunity to speak with experts in the field, understand the challenges those teams face in their daily activities and identify exactly how we can make their lives better so medical devices can end up faster in the hands of those who need it most.
Stefan Siarov, Valispace
Joining the Reactor as the already ongoing company helped us confirm our strategy, identify the next steps, and contact top experts. We got insights into putting our strategy to action with realistic tips regarding many topics, such as commercial pitches, communication processes, how to expand our market, and many other crucial topics that were essential at that time for us. Whether you are a newly born company or a company with a few years of experience - you will do things better after this unique business experience.
Manuel Munoz Iglesias, Qubiotech
Reactor programme was a huge opportunity for our company because we could validate product marketability with participating SMEs, experts, and selected mentors. We have received significant assistance in assessing our market situation and preparing key strategic and financial documentation. We were able to identify the most important market segments and prepare a market entry schedule. The online sprints were well-organized, HVL and GE Healthcare staff managed the programme professionally.

Participating with Upmedic at the Reactor allowed us to take a bigger perspective on the MedTech market as we were meeting teams from different countries and examining different strategies. By having access to all expertise we could imagine, backed by GE Healthcare, we absorbed all essential business knowledge (sales, marketing, public speaking) to convert our solution into a fully-fledged business.
Paweł Paczuski, Upmedic
I certainly recommend this programme, as it helps you to learn how to do business very well. Most of the teams have their technical side assured, but you also have to know how to do business, and the HVL programme supports you precisely with that.

The Reactor21 programme gave IT-MEDicine Ltd real benefits. We have received deep knowledge of the European healthcare sector, marketing and sales of medical devices. Working in the MedTech B2B environment, such relevant lectures and 1:1 discussions with experts have widened our understanding of how we should act on the market and the specificities we should consider. A big plus of the programme was that it gave an opportunity to meet with GE Healthcare experts. These experts work in the same field as we are but have decades of international experience in various healthcare aspects (sales, software engineering, product development, legal issues, etc.).
