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.
