About I2A and the international accelerator program
I2A is primarily a deep-dive market-readiness and investor-readiness accelerator for Digitalhealth and MedTech startups and scaleups. Achieving market access and product/market-fit to the european markets is the goal.
There are only few fast tracks to market. The best technology and the best product is nothing without product-market-fit. You can either explore it or use the acquired knowledge of market professionals. Our goal is to nurture teams and businesses to help you succeed in bringing healthcare innovation to market.
If you think, we or any other institution out there have always this knowledge and perseverance, you are wrong. But we insure you our dediction and assertiveness to help you find the right solution.
