Hear from our Community

“This program highlighted hurdles an early-stage healthcare company must overcome to be successful through seminars and one-on-one meetings with successful healthcare executives. We feel more adequately equipped to navigate future strategic decisions and are grateful for the vast network Project Healthcare introduced us to.”
– Braden Davison, Healing Innovations (Project Healthcare 2018)


Payments for the program will be made in quarterly installments. We understand that building a world class startup happens on a tight budget. That’s why we take 0% equity in our companies, and as a non-profit, have subsidized the program fee to less than 1/10th of what it costs us, thanks to our Program Partners.
