About DayOne and the Health 4.0 accelerator
Our three accelerator programs are the core of our mission.
Each one is tailored to address a specific need of the healthcare industry.
The Digital Health Nation accelerator helps Swiss startups in the healthcare system to transform their ideas into solutions, the DayOne Tech accelerator supports medtech ventures and the DayOne Health 4.0 accelerator is geared towards international digital health scaleups.
Health 4.0 aims at bridging the gap between biopharma companies and digital health startups. This accelerator has been designed to propel digital health startups and scaleups in the pharma world and foster potential collaborations for the benefit of all citizens.
It has been successfully running for 5 years now and tackles various healthcare challenges. Every year, a theme is defined to reflect current healthcare challenges and support digital health startups and scaleups that are addressing them.
Joining the Health 4.0 accelerator opens up opportunities for digital health startups and scaleups to accelerate their growth. It also offers a safe space for healthcare or biopharma players to collaborate with others in the ecosystem and keep up with the fast-paced health tech innovation space.
