How The Selection Process Works

Getting accepted onto the HS. programme will likely be one of the most challenging things that you do. The selection process begins with an online application and ends with in-person interviews where you will be put to the test as founders and as a company.
The HS. ecosystem offers companies an unfair advantage but we can't do all of the work for you and so it is imperative that you are self-motivated and can demonstrate that you are already on your way to being an amazing founder and health tech company.
Although it is very tough, the process is also fair and as entrepreneurs ourselves we know that learning comes from failing on multiple occasions. We provide all applicants with feedback on their performance and there is no limit to the number of times that you can apply.

The Unfair Advantage For Your Growing Company

The HS. programme is not an accelerator or incubator programme for start-ups - it is a scaling programme designed to meet the needs of your high-potential company by working with you to develop new sales channels, access new supply chains, scale your business globally and raise investment. The programme is exclusive and we only select the best founders and companies to join HS.

The competitive selection process is open twice a year, meaning that you can apply at any time. The selection process features an online application to give us an idea about the stage and size of your company together with what products you sell and whether they will benefit our partners and patients. Shortlisted companies will then be invited for interview.

Who Is It For?

The HS. programme determines impact by commercial success and the quantifiable financial benefit to both companies and our corporate partners. The key criteria for HS. is that your founders, board and shareholders are committed to scaling your company and that you feel your product or service can benefit patients and health.
Our overall goal is to tackle global health challenges through innovation and technology and so we are agnostic to the size of your company. Our priority is bringing great products to market that can help to make health spend sustainable and provide benefit to patients. Whether you are a talented founder with an idea or generating millions in revenue we are here to help you scale at light speed.
