More than money: support, acceleration & impact

BETA.HEALTH grants offer more than funding. This is a partnership. Our dedicated BETA.HEALTH project teams will invest the time and brainpower necessary to deeply understand your project. We're here to help clear obstacles from your path – and support you in securing critical buy-in from decision-makers at multiple hospitals.

We’ll help break down barriers to innovation, provide continuous consultation, and grant you full access to our network of experts and communities. We believe that innovation doesn't just come from funding. It's about providing the right competencies, experts and support – at the right times.
