Join Our Global Army of Health Transformers™
StartUp Health invests in Health Transformers who have the mindset to achieve Health Moonshots.
We maximize the powerful reach of StartUp Health’s modern media platform and global network to help Health Transformers continually attract the partners, customers, talent, and investors at every stage of their company’s growth that will drive success and increase their company’s equity value. StartUp Health’s Transformer Funds also invest in Health Transformers as they scale their companies by making follow on investments in rounds that meet transparent investment criteria.
Over the past seven years StartUp Health has built a family of media channels — collectively known as The StartUp Health Network — that reaches an engaged global audience of more than 200,000 people who matter most to a Health Moonshot Company’s success: partners, customers, investors, patients, and caregivers. What first began as a weekly newsletter and blog has grown into the multi-channel StartUp Health Network and now includes an online community, a mobile app, exclusive invite-only events like our StartUp Health Festival, a digital and print magazine, web shows, podcasts, and powerful social media channels.
Quarter after quarter, year after year, The StartUp Health Network features inspiring stories, thought leadership, and details about the progress each company is making along their journey, providing them with valuable exposure, validation, and ongoing visibility to a growing worldwide audience. This unique platform helps companies build credibility and increase their equity value over time by transforming them into powerful magnets to continually attract new customers, talent, and investors who will partner with them, work for them, and invest in them.
The StartUp Health team coaches Health Transformers on how to break through the noise, empower their biggest champions, and create fertile ground to grow. At least every 90 days, through a unique combination of community-based quarterly workshops, online strategic thinking tools, and expert office hours, our Health Transformers refresh their company Tear Sheet and Investor Update with their latest story, company achievements, and accountability metrics so that StartUp Health and all of their other champions, including investors, board members, and advisors, can collaborate with them to support them as they grow and scale.
StartUp Health’s global army of Health Transformers is the largest and most connected community of health innovators in the world, giving every member extraordinary access and support. Every quarter, we select Health Transformers from up to 20 companies to become lifetime members of our exclusive founder community, which now includes hundreds of entrepreneurs from more than 250 companies in 20+ countries and six continents. We connect these founders together both online and offline to share insights and resources, learn what’s working and not working, identify who’s helpful and not helpful, and leverage the power of our collective networks.
Our long-term model is not predicated on a short-term push, a one-time demo day, one-off introductions, or varying advice from mentors. Quarter after quarter, and through every stage of a StartUp Health Company’s growth, we act like the conductor of an orchestra of their biggest champions, helping our companies continually attract the partners, customers, investors, and talent they need to succeed. The bottom line is that we strive to be among the most valuable and collaborative partners on a Health Transformer’s cap table.
