Apply to EIT Health's Investor Network Accelerator Programme

EIT Health brings together the Investor Network, a Europe-wide consortium of investors offering early-stage funding to promising healthcare start-ups.

The EIT Health Investor Network facilitates early-stage fundraising across Europe to help accelerate innovative ideas to health markets faster. The network connects qualified companies seeking funding with a pool of selected European investors. We work with investors including early-stage venture capitalists, family offices, angel networks or super angels.

Is it for me?

  • Are your raising a Seed or Series A round of funding?
  • Are you an early stage investor interested in healthcare?
  • The EIT Health Investor Network supports the most innovative European healthcare start-ups.
  • If you are a European registered company seeking equity from €500,000 to €10 million, or if you are seeking to invest in a qualified healthcare deal flow, we’d love to hear from you.

Start-ups: Why the Investor Network?

Raising funds is a lengthy and complex process for start-ups, especially those looking to launch in multiple markets across Europe. The Investor Network can help you to navigate that process.

After a detailed evaluation of your project, you will receive recommendations of next steps. You will also have the opportunity to connect with some of the most active early stage healthcare private and institutional investors in Europe. The EIT Health Investor Network team will introduce your project to the network, as well as to specific investors, while providing you with insights and access to the services you need.
