Deep Industry Knowledge
Tap into the expertise of our industrial and academic partners, gaining invaluable insight into HealthTech commercialisation and development.
HVL participants come from over 16 countries in Europe. Grow outside of your own borders, get insight and support in foreign markets, and meet other founders facing similar challenges.
HVL does not take equity stakes in cohorts’ businesses. We concentrate on providing tailored mentorship, education, and training to help further grow your business and scale the technology.
GE Healthcare experts will provide crucial insights, real-world examples, and holistic advice on commercialising healthcare products.
The Reactor programme gave us real benefits. We have received deep knowledge of the European healthcare sector, marketing and sales of medical devices. 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 us an opportunity to meet with GE Healthcare experts who work in the same field but also have decades of international experience in various healthcare aspects (sales, software engineering, product development, legal issues, etc.).

HVL's Reactor accelerator was a great opportunity to meet relevant people within GE Healthcare. It helped Lightspace build a new network with professionals and get their direct feedback. Another point worth mentioning is the trainer and one of the leading advisers who definitely gave the right boost for entrepreneurs in getting ready to do the really impactful pitch.
Madara Kalniņa-Kalnmale, Lightspace Labs
The Reactor was the best start into the GE Healthcare ecosystem we can think of: they always had our progress in mind, connected us to the right people at GE and as a cherry on top, we've got valuable feedback from inspiring minds. Despite it being fully digital, the HVL team managed to create a sense of community among the team and the startups. It's no wonder therefore we love moving forward with GE Healthcare and are now part of the Edison Developer Event and had a first joint customer visit at a GE KOL.
Rafael Hostettler, Medical Templates AG
Being part of Reactor’21 helped our company in many ways. It allowed us to challenge our value proposition with subject matter experts, potential end-users, and partners, supporting us in shifting towards a different positioning. This allowed closing a number of partnerships with distributors and being selected for GE Healthcare's Edison Developer Event, an impressive journey that culminated in a demo to their clinical leadership team.

Reactor 2021 programme will provide a customised path to the market for early-stage startups with innovative Digital Medical Imaging and Hospital Process Optimisation solutions. Four intensive remote Sprints paired with mentorship will offer teams extensive training and expertise they need to commercialise their product or service.
In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced millions of businesses to move dramatically toward online channels. HVL is no exception: Reactor 2020 had to be shifted entirely online, and it proved to be a massive success. We see many benefits in having the programme online including that cohorts get an even broader range of professors from prestigious universities, top experts, and outstanding trainers to make meaningful connections and have more frequent 1:1 consultations. Reactor 2021 will be fully online once again based on triumphant previous experience running the remote programme.
