The call for application for 2019 Making More Health (MMH) Accelerator program has been made for health tech startups to compete for €50,000 (about $56,737).
MMH — launched in 2010 — is calling on companies that are using technology towards improving health care for humans, the environment and animals.
Interested startups must be looking forward to scaling their operations or create new innovations. Only startups from Kenya, Ghana or Nigeria can participate in the accelerator program.
Aside from the above, the startups must not be less than two years old and must have developed a sustainable revenue model. Social entrepreneurs that are open to collaborating with a pharmaceutical company are also eligible.
Selected startups would not only get the prize money, but they would also be provided with technical support, opportunity to pitch to potential investors, access to the networks of the organisers of the program.
The accelerator program is organised by Ashoka and Boehringer Ingelheim towards improving health-care access for people, animals and their communities around the world.
The deadline for the application is February 15, 2019. Read more about the program and apply here.
