Spark-BIH in collaboration with the Stiftung Charité is pleased to share that on September 16th, three teams from the I4H Bootcamps were selected for funding and mentorship support. This marks the second funding round as part of this novel program. Funding for both phases of the program has been provided by the Stiftung Charité as part of the Private Exzellenzinitiative Johanna Quandt.
A jury comprised of selected experts in digital health, design, business and regulatory affairs were brought together for this review. Relevant industry partners were represented here, among them, Berlin Partner, Boehringer Ingelheim, and the Hasso-Plattner-Institute. Selected teams will now join the SPARK-BIH program and embark on an entrepreneurial journey aimed at producing valuable proof of concept and preparatory measures for a potential commercialization in later stages of their development.
Funded teams cover a diverse range of medical areas including; radiology, mental health, and pediatrics. Mentorship and funding of these teams will begin imminently and the SPARK-BIH team is eager to assist in their success.
