Founded by two entrepreneurial doctors, HS. is an accelerator and fund, based in London, that builds, scales and invests in healthtech startups to tackle global health issues and improve health and patient care through innovation. We select talent at all stages within the healthtech vertical – from individuals with ambitious ideas and excellent skillsets, to established teams looking to scale. We offer lifetime support to successful applicants and we support our founders to build internationally applicable technology from day one to scale into multiple markets, including the NHS, private healthcare sector, insurance, B-C and emerging markets.
Our team includes clinicians, entrepreneurs and investors passionate about improving health through technology. We work with healthcare providers and multi-national corporate partners to identify their innovation challenges and create partnerships with the best health startups to solve these challenges through innovation, whilst helping startups to scale.
Since launching in April 2017, our first cohort of 13 startups are valued at over £14m, bringing 7 new products to market, generating >£450,000 in revenue and winning multiple prizes. As well as being accompanied by a fund, we are now looking for investment to scale our accelerator to launch the following, which also act as significant revenue streams:
• HS.Hubs - co-working spaces that act as landing zones for scaling companies and offer membership to local companies to expand our deal-flow. They provide revenue streams through membership and events.
• SaaS Tech Platform - purpose-built to manage accelerator programmes, including: applied AI to manage and track applications, metrics tracker, mentor and investor portals to track progress, CRM, data and comms rooms
• Intelligence and Informatics - sector reports e.g. healthtech trends and company evaluation services for other organisations, e.g. corporates, private equity firms etc.
