Springboard Enterprises Announces 2021 Health Innovation Hub: Digital Health Cohort

Springboard Enterprises recently announced its 2021 Health Innovation Hub: Digital Health Cohort. Ten women-led digital health companies will participate in the program, which includes an intensive bootcamp, workshop series and ultimately matches each entrepreneur with a team of relevant, strategic advisors as they navigate their next stage of growth. Springboard is celebrating more than 20 years of supporting women-led companies and industry transformation.

For two decades, Springboard Enterprises has accelerated the growth of entrepreneurial companies founded and led by women. “The women in this cohort are part of the digital health revolution driving innovations in patient-focused care and will ultimately contribute to people worldwide achieving a higher standard of wellness,” said Springboard Enterprises CEO Natalie Buford-Young.

Springboard’s Health Innovation Hub: Digital Health is a program for women-led digital health companies seeking growth funding and connections to experts and strategic partners for product development and expansion. Selected companies unite with a personal advisory team. The team must provide a meaningful impact on the company’s next stage of growth. The program, while virtual, engages advisors and investors in a variety of in-person presentation sessions throughout the year and beyond.
