Themes/areas of interest

Rockstart's team members believe that a thesis-led approach allows us to attract a cohort of startups that fit well together – startups that are trying to solve similar problems and thus facing the same challenges.

Digital Health Accelerator is looking to work with startups working the following areas:

  • Self-care: These solutions enable patients to be in better control of their health. The solutions could be around chronic diseases, specific medical conditions, rehabilitative care, wellness, remote monitoring and behavioral change.
  • Biosensors and wearables: These allow for capture of biomarkers, could be on-body or in-body devices, such as ingestibles, patches, wristbands or implants, that help create personalized data and can be used for diagnostics or monitoring.
  • Efficiency platforms: These are solutions that tend to serve as two/three sided markets, between payer/providers/clinicians/patients. They often plug into the existing healthcare system and change it for the better.
  • Specialized solutions: These could be software, device or platforms that cross-pollinate and bring in a proven innovation from another field to healthcare via a unique methodology/application, with a digital angle.
