“As Europe’s largest consortium dedicated to health and one of the largest Accelerators in the health domain that doesn’t offer start-ups its own physical space, EIT Health did a competitive analysis on other global players during its initiation phase. Within this strategy we found a great example, One Million by One Million, (1Mby1M), a global virtual accelerator founded in Silicon Valley by Sramana Mitra,” said Kurt Höller, Director of Business Creation at EIT Health. “Their aim is to nurture a million entrepreneurs to reach a million dollars each in annual revenue and beyond. Today we join forces. We are very proud to announce our partnership with 1Mby1M: From now on we will jointly support more than 100 European Digital Health Startups per year with their business model development and access to the Silicon Valley ecosystem”.
