Vision Health Pioneers is an incubator that supports first-time founders in gaining entrepreneurial know-how, building a strong network, and launching their product idea in Germany.
We are delighted to announce that for our last cohort to join us in 2022 (our fifth cohort who will begin in July 2022!) we are holding a hackathon!
This Vision Health Pioneers Hackathon acts as the gateway into our 10-month startup program that supports first-time founders from Europe in launching their healthcare startups.
Teams that enter our Berlin-based startup program benefit from coaching sessions with experts in various disciplines, and mentoring from professionals who are leaders in their field of expertise, they will be introduced to our network and get access to our free co-working space at Unicorn Workspaces. We also support teams with equity-free, non-refundable scholarship funding of up to 20,000 euros per person. So your team, of up to 4 team members could win 80,000 euros in this hackathon! (Eligibility criteria applies).
During the hackathon we are holding workshops with some of our proven experts – so use the week-long hackathon to gain further knowledge and apply it to your startup. We also provide access to some of our great ecosystem of mentors who are there to support you in various areas. Dedicated expert mentors will also evaluate your team during the week. On the last day, Friday May 20 we are holding a Pitch Day, live from the virtual stage, so use this opportunity to wow the judges and make an impact.
The hackathon is open to those with pre-existing teams, teams who would like to find additional teammates (up to 4 per team) and individual entrepreneurs who are on the lookout to join a team that needs their skill sets and experience.
Startups that already applied via the F6S page for Vision Health Pioneers Incubator can and are encouraged to join.
At the end of the hackathon, you can decide if you are ready to take the leap and start your own venture!
