BE

PROGRAM.

ACCELERATOR

This is our original acceleration program, infused with the learnings from our previous 3 batches. The international program follows a 16 week curriculum for early-stage startups looking for proof of concept, verifying feasibility and market demand. The program recruits 2 batches per year and we use Taiwan as their launch pad into the Asian market.

 

The teams that are selected for the program will have the opportunity to be recruited into the BEX program, where they could receive an initial investment of up to $200k USD. 

 

The program curriculum gives startups exposure to various aspects of medical clinical verification resources, Asian market development and matching, business opportunities, intellectual property, shareholding structure and fundraising. 

 

The advantage of this program is that we assist our teams with two-stage product verification. At the clinical end we use Taiwan and Asian based medical institutions to conduct clinical trials and apply for multi-national certification with regulatory patent companies. At the market end we provide professional consulting and counselling for investments purposes.

 

The end goal of the program is to establish a proof of concept, creation of a minimum viable product, technical verification and developing a sound business model.
