Health&Care and Tech4Climate programs launched by the Ship2B foundation and Impact Hub

The Ship2B foundation and Impact Hub look for startups that have solutions with social impact, people’s quality of life or the environment. For this reason, they are launching this call that seeks to identify innovative startups that provide solutions to the challenges defined for the Health&Care or Tech4Climate programs. These programs combine training, mentoring, keynote speaker sessions and public presentations.

The solutions must have a level of technological development equal to or greater than TRL 4 (Technology Readiness Level), be established and have at least one person dedicated full-time to the project.

Entrepreneurs will receive advice from top-level professionals, connections with large companies and entities in order to boost their growth, help to maximise the impact of the organisation and many networking opportunities.

For selected startups (10 startups per vertical), the program begins with the Impact Acceleration Bootcamp, an intensive week of training. At this stage, the finalists are chosen for the acceleration phase (4 startups per vertical), which lasts approximately three months.

The program contains several modules that work on the definition and measurement of impact, validation of the business model, preparation for investment, among others.

These are the key dates for these programs:

Webinar Q&A: November 28, 2023.
Phase 1. Bootcamp: February 6-9, 2024.
Phase 2. Acceleration: from February 22 to May 23, 2024.
Demo Day: June 6, 2024.

Startups can submit their proposals until December 17 at 12am.
