FAQs

The Health Innovation accelerator is an overarching program for all medtech and health innovation, while Decentralized Health offers a more dedicated track for health and fitness solutions that leverage Web3 in their core technology. There will be shared core curriculum modules across Decentralized Health and Health Innovation programs such as fundraising strategy, pitch coaching, product strategy, but there may be additional offerings specific to each track such as go-to-market strategy, community and tokenomics.

There are ~3-4 hours of scheduled sessions at recurring time slots determined at the start of the program aligned to the cohort’s schedule. Additionally, ~3 hours of time each week may be needed for pre-work, progress towards your program objectives, and meeting with mentors 1:1 or in small group formats.

Generally, yes. Please ensure you will still have capacity to attend sessions and meet expected program time commitments. If joining Brinc after another accelerator, please note that Brinc’s curriculum is tailored to each cohort and specific objectives for each startup are mutually agreed to at the start of the program. Brinc’s program is virtual.

Brinc aims to support every startup participating in its programs by connecting them with suitable program investment partners. If your startup advances to the second phase of the application process, the investment partner’s offer will be addressed from the very first call. Disbursement of the investment amount typically occurs during the program or shortly after.

Yes, Brinc charges a US$35,000 program fee. Typically, payment is required after the program investment partner fully disburses the investment amount.

Brinc will consider solo founders based on the strength of their application. Brinc will also aim to support founders in searching for a co-founder as needed, but please note that this is not a primary focus of the program. Please consider whether you will have capacity as a solo founder to maintain the level of engagement expected throughout the program.

Brinc uses a weighted scorecard covering aspects ranging across each of the same modules as the program (team, tech, market, financials, impact). Founders must be pursuing an idea full time. We also look for founders who are coachable and have a sense of how the program can best support them. Since the programs are designed to support founders connecting to institutional investors, we do prioritize companies with approaches with clear defensibility.

The exact calendar start will depend on the startup selection process. At this time, the program start is targeted for Q1 2024.
