SUND Hub incubator

SUND Hub Incubator attending TechBBQ 2019

SUND Hub incubator is a 12 months program for you who have an idea and/or a startup you want to develop even further. You may want to start a business or realize an innovation project. 

The program is aimed at early stage startups and innovation projects initiated by students and teams who are eager to work actively throughout 12 months on developing the solutions, testing the solutions and building a network.

Even though you might not see yourself as an entrepreneur you can participate. You can also participate if you have an established business because the program will help you take it to the next step. 

We take you through the themes that early stage startups must go through when putting the ideas into action and making them happen. We focus specifically at the health sector and will introduce you to the sector as a market and the regulatory affairs concerning health innovations.  

The program starts twice a year (Summer and Winter) 

The application is closed for Spring 2021. Next deadline is in June 2021.

NOTICE: The program will be merged with Health Innovators. You can take part in all activities from this program combined with the incubator program.
