Based at the heart of Europe’s healthcare hub, in Basel.
Our special focus pain management track starts in January 2022 – Apply by November 5th, 2021

Tech: Our newest vertical accelerates tech ventures in the field of medical robotics, virtual reality for healthcare, or personalized medical technologies, at the interface with the micromechanics and robotics industry.

Who we help

The DayOne Accelerator is aimed at innovators from across the spectrum including startups, patients, doctorpreneurs, academia, and corporate intrapreneurs

What we do

Our DayOne 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.

How the program helps

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

  • refine and test their scale-up strategy
  • attend workshops, go-see events, and public pitches
  • gain training in adapting their value proposition to new types of customers, testing their products on new markets or de-risking their latest product or service, growing their team, and adapting their organization
  • 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 Basel Area locations.

The overall program was excellent and the selected coaches assisted us to shape our business model. I would recommend the DayOne Accelerator to any med-tech startup. Amazing team and network.
