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.

  • Equity-Free

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. 

  • Corporate Engagement

GE Healthcare experts will provide crucial insights, real-world examples, and holistic advice on commercialising healthcare products.

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. 

Health Venture Lab is building a colossal ecosystem providing a full stream of startup support built on transatlantic cooperation that connects industry, academia, private sector, researchers, hospitals, and entrepreneurs to collaborate and develop synergies to impact healthcare system. Health Venture Lab experienced year over year growth and was named among the top 10 accelerators in Europe by Sifted. HVL is part of the European-focused ecosystem providing all necessary tools and solutions for each phase of the innovation process from the early idea generation to the commercialisation to develop sustainable and meaningful healthcare business ideas.
