The EIT Health Headstart Programme accelerates the market launch of selected healthcare start-ups through grants as well as support with networking and developing a project plan.

Headstart provides companies that are chosen for the programme up to €50,000 to support the development of innovative healthcare products and services. Companies winning Headstart awards will create a project plan with the support of the EIT Health Business Creation Managers, to help them harness the local and international network to accelerate their product launch. Awards are intended to:

  • support the applicants in realising next steps towards market;
  • verify the need/benefit of the product/service;
  • increase the possibility of attracting further private investment.

Is it for me?

Applicants should be incorporated, or they must be incorporated on selection. Ideal applicants have an estimated company valuation of less than €1 million.
