So far, Vision Health Pioneers Incubator has supported 100 first-time entrepreneurs and invested more than 5 million euros in developing digital health solutions that tackle real-life problems in healthcare. 

Our 6th application phase happened in August to support more healthcare startups to start another 9-month journey with us. And out of 85+ applicants, 14 entrepreneurs & 6 teams convinced our jury of healthcare experts and conquered the multi-stage selection process of our incubator.

Since the beginning of this month, we have been busy at work welcoming them for our 6th Cohort at our crib at The Drivery. Some ice got broken on their first day with brunch and games as they got to know each other and what’s in store for their nine months with us. In the following weeks, they were introduced to Berlin’s healthcare ecosystem by Flavia Kruse from Berlin Partner für Wirtschaft und Technologie GmbH and already presented their solutions to their mentors in a get-together at our studio, followed up by 1-1 sessions, drinks, and more.

Now it’s time to get to know them better!

Meet Our 6th Cohort

Team coobi – Digital support for addiction therapy

We aim to leverage digital biomarkers to evaluate resilience and forecast craving of individuals suffering from addiction. This enables us to provide timely interventions at crucial moments when support is most essential. Our methodology not only aids the patient throughout their recovery journey but also equips therapists with more objective data for effective treatment planning.

Team Hope for Men – Professional online therapy for men dealing with sexual trauma

Research reveals that at least 1 in 6 men have had unwanted sexual experiences. Due to limited resources for male survivors and complicated processes to find a suitable therapist many men feel depressed and isolated. We will offer immediate access to a diverse pool of therapists, reducing waiting times and enhancing successful healing.
