PainChek® was one of the 5 top companies from around the world to be selected to join their exclusive and intense 12-week program taking place simultaneously in four Innovation Hubs – Eindhoven (Netherlands), Cambridge (USA), Shanghai (China) and Bangalore (India).

The Program kicked off in September and will culminate in December with Breakthrough Day, a major event with on-stage pitches by the graduating startups in front of key business stakeholders, program sponsors and members of their wider innovation ecosystem.

Program goals and benefits

Throughout the Program, they aim to identify, validate and shape collaboration opportunities between the selected companies and Philips.
To achieve this goal, during the next few weeks, the teams will gain access to unrivaled expertise and support from their internal and external experts, as well as their wider innovation ecosystem partners.

Shaping the future of healthcare together
A focus on patient monitoring and analytics

The Programs are themed on health technology areas where together with startups and small businesses they can make a difference. For this year’s Global Program, they identified Patient Monitoring and Patient Care Analytics. Read the Manifesto for Innovation in Patient Monitoring to learn more about why they believe it is so important to accelerate innovation in this field.

Working in a themed cohort means also that the group can challenge and learn from like minded entrepreneurs who are all eager to further their ability to create wildly impactful tools, technology and solutions.
