Subsidy Innovation Brokers

To support entrepreneurs (innovative startups and scale-up companies in the health sector), Top Sector LSH (Health~Holland) provides an arrangement to reimburse 50% of the innovation brokers costs. The reimbursment is to a maximum of €5.000. Innovation brokers address several activities, thereby helping entrepreneurs to take the next step in their idea to innovate healthcare.

The innovation brokers make their time available to advise and guide SMEs on:

  • The development of a product, process or service;
  • The value proposition and possible revenue models;
  • Making a business case;
  • Finding funding for the development;
  • Obtaining certification in the development of medical technology;
  • Connection in the network. Linking the right (cooperation) partners (healthcare, knowledge institutions, other companies and government).
