Healthbox Unveils Next Class of Startups


Healthbox has unveiled the next class of startups that it has accepted into its digital health accelerator program. The program kicked off on May 6th and will run from a new campus in Miami. Healthbox has partnered with GuideWell, the parent company of Florida Blue, to provide startups with local support and mentorship. The new location brings Healthbox’s total campuses to seven, with Boston, Chicago, Florida, Nashville, Salt Lake City, and London having previously hosted programs.

In a break from traditional accelerator models, Healthbox is piloting a new approach to helping grow startups with its Miami class. Called Healthbox Studios, the new model offers no initial funding, but requires no equity be given up. Additionally, full-time, on-site attendance is not mandatory. Instead, startups enter into an eight-week program organized into bi-weekly modules that address key knowledge areas. Startups receive guidance and feedback throughout the program.

In total, 10 startups were selected to participate in the new program.
