It's the most exciting time for health transformation in history.
At StartUp Health, we’ve seen what happens when you bring together people with the right mindset, a moonshot vision, and the spirit of an entrepreneur:
The impossible becomes possible.
That’s why, since 2011, we’ve been organizing and investing in a global army of entrepreneurs dedicated to achieving health moonshots.
This is a rocket ship, and we’ve filled it with fuel.
To the Health Transformers of the World:
We created StartUp Health to help you, the entrepreneur, thrive, scale, and ultimately achieve health moonshots. Our platform has three critical parts:
A Global Army of Health Transformers

When you join this army of Health Transformers, we unite you with like-minded entrepreneurs and amplify your story.
First, we connect you to a global peer network.
We give you unprecedented access to a curated network of investors, customers, partners, and individuals with a vested interest in your success.
We instantly connect you to hundreds of other entrepreneurs who share your transformational mindset and commitment to achieve health moonshots.
Then, we provide you with continuous visibility on the StartUp Health Media Network.
We use our StartUp Health Media Network to regularly broadcast your stories of health transformation to a curated global audience of investors, customers, partners, and individuals.
Our investment process focuses on you the entrepreneur. That’s why everything starts with a conversation.
We believe the key to achieving health moonshots lies in your mindset. We want to learn what makes you tick. Your ability to learn from your past experiences, to own (and hone) your unique abilities, to convey confidence and an ambitious vision, and your ability to provide energy to those around you plus attract “batteries-included” team members are all indicators of this mindset. That's why our process begins with an Entrepreneur Scorecard.
We apply the strength of our existing network to form transformational co-investor partnerships. We work with investors who work closely with you, the entrepreneur. These energy-providing collaborators have a stellar track record of investing exclusively in health innovation companies, like yours, to maximize long-term impact.
We look at the big picture. We believe that the strength of your moonshot vision can be measured by the sum of these two parts: your mindset and the mindset of the investors. We invest in you alongside co-investors when everyone shares a long-term commitment to contributing to achieving a Health Moonshot.
We have a path for you.
No matter if your company is Pre-Seed or Series C, our platform gives you the amplification you need to achieve your health moonshot.
We follow a co-investment strategy and will directly invest in your current round based on our standard investment criteria.
If we do not directly invest in you, we have a program that is designed to afford you with the same benefits of our platform as the rest of your fellow Health Transformers.
Together we will achieve the impossible. Together we will improve the health and wellbeing for everyone in the world.
