About this Program
Bendigo Health are proud to announce that it has secured funding from LaunchVic to run the Bendigo Health Accelerator (BHx) aimed to bridge the gap between entrepreneurial spirit and drive, and the complex problems within healthcare, in collaboration with the Melbourne Health Accelerator (MHx), under the umbrella of the Victorian Health Network Accelerator (VHNx).
The BHx provides a platform to explore and validate healthcare related business opportunities by supporting a selected group of companies to work within an in-situ hospital co-working space, attend customised educational workshops, and access world-class clinicians.
Startups accepted into the program participate in a semi-structured curriculum covering intellectual property, licensing, product design, business models, law, finance, ethics, and research governance, sales, marketing and pitching. As a part of the program Bendigo Health will introduce participants in the BHx to the entrepreneurial and clinical ecosystems, increasing their network exponentially and increased their chance of success.
With funding from LaunchVic, which is a Victorian Government initiative designed to support the startup ecosystem, a strong alumni network, mentoring relationships, and support from across the spectrum, VHNx is an established program that provides a variety of opportunities to understand, learn and solve problems from every facet of the health-related business.
