Mar 14 - Sep 14 | Fairfax, VA, USA

Propelling Technology to Point-of-Care

About this Program


The IPHA team has a documented track record of starting, building, commercializing, growing, investing in and exiting medical technology companies. We have delivered superior returns to our investors and strategic partners. We also have extensive experience in recruiting and mentoring exceptional, impact-oriented management teams.

IPHA offers an intensive, customized program on the campus of the INOVA Center for Personalized Health (ICPH) in Fairfax, VA. During the program, companies will work closely with the IPHA team to evolve initial stage prototypes to validated products, mature business models, and go-to-market plans for their healthcare technology solutions.

The program includes modules in these disciplines:

Product validation
Customer acquisition
Capital planning
Investor development
Talent recruitment
Board development
Regulatory & quality compliance
Reimbursement strategies
Clinical evaluation

In contrast to most accelerator programs, the IPHA partners operate the program as an investment fund and focus on achieving specific milestones. We invest in companies on a rolling basis with new members capable of participating in the spring, fall or both training sessions. IPHA partner performance is linked to the return on investment delivered by the portfolio of IPHA companies.

Inova is a major healthcare system and research institution that serves more than two million people each year and has over 16,000 employees.
