In the past few months, BE has grown its footprint in terms of location, partnerships, and team members. In keeping up with this 'growing' trend, we are excited to announce that our first batch for the new decade will be our biggest thus far.
BE Accelerator is ecstatic to welcome 20 new startups into our latest batch that will kick off at the beginning of this month. As this is the largest cohort that we have onboarded, our program will be slightly extended and run over five months. We believe that this will give our startups more time to engage with the local ecosystems and foster collaborative relationships with our hospital partners as they look to establish pilot sites across Taiwan.
Since the inception of our accelerator in 2018, the BE team has worked exceptionally hard in trying to establish meaningful partnerships with hospitals in Taiwan. The endless meetings, midnight emails, and numerous hospital visits have culminated in establishing collaborative partnerships with Taipei Medical University and Show Chwan Healthcare System.
Our latest batch will certainly reap the benefits of this toil, as our hospital partners will be directly involved in our program. By helping startup teams gain access to medical expertise, medical resources, and potential pilot sites we are excited by this collaboration.
The startups have been divided into two groups and assigned to a specific hospital based on their solutions. The teams focused on digital health and AI will be part of the Taipei Medical University track, and those focused on minimally invasive surgery and medical devices will be part of the Show Chwan Healthcare System track.
We trust that our unparalleled access to hospital facilities, research institutes, investors, healthcare experts, and other industry stakeholders will help these early-stage startups establish a proof of concept, as they look to make an impact in the healthcare landscape.
