How is the Grit Accelerator different than other programs?
This program core difference lies in its ability to support female founders, working in digital health and life science industries. We provide the knowledge and steps to access VC funding within these industries. And provide a network of global VC introductions and supports.
Female founders gain a greater understanding of the many challenges faced, when working outside their home market. And build lifelong relationships with other international female participants.
Is there any cost or equity taken?
No. There is no cost or equity taken to participate in the program. The program is free. We aim to remove all financial barriers and allow females from any background to participate.
What types of companies does the program look for?
We are interested in technologies and services that can positively impact digital health and life science. Companies that have some form of proof of concept, seeking supports to redefine their business models and raise VC investment.
What is the right stage of company for this program? Are we too far along?
Grit Accelerator can be a good fit for companies with a functional prototype-to established commercially deployed products. Ideally, companies that already have a product and some traction.
Funding also varies widely. Some companies, may have raised anywhere from a few thousand euro to larger funding. Ultimately, we are interested in highly promising companies who are in growth mode. Please feel free to talk with us and we can help you determine whether we are the right fit for you!
