The DayOne digital health accelerator supports promising ventures that combine groundbreaking technologies, healthcare expertise and entrepreneurial spirit. We look for innovative ventures that solve problems across a broad range of healthcare areas from diagnosis, treatment and prevention to patient and caregiver communication to improvements that directly assist healthcare workers.

Who we help

The digital health accelerator is aimed at innovators from across the spectrum including startups, patients, doctorpreneurs and corporate intrapreneurs. We’re looking for innovation from the idea stage to proof of concept, as well as themes that are more appropriate for established ventures.

What we do

Our digital health accelerator program helps innovative healthcare ventures build the teams, skills and connections needed to be successful. Ventures are selected on their promise and ability to meet challenges brought by DayOne Accelerator partners.

How the program helps

The accelerator helps to embed promising ventures into the Basel Area ecosystem. The selected ventures receive support to:

  • refine and test their business models
  • attend workshops, go-see events, and public pitches
  • gain training in defining their value proposition with customers, testing their products and pitching
  • find partners to bring their business to the next level

Accelerator participants have access to co-working space at one of our Switzerland Innovation Park BaselArea locations.

The DayOne Acceleration program was truly an enriching experience. As a program, they cover a lot of relevant topics to have in mind while building your med-tech startup, and as coaches, they have an amazing team with wide expertise and wise advice to give.
