The most difficult task a startup has is to raise capital. Especially now during COVID and times of economic uncertainty the IIA’s government grants are here to promote the Israeli high-tech ecosystem.
Currently, one of the programs is Health-Tech Pilot Program.
Interested Israeli companies are invited to submit applications to pilot, test, adapt and optimize impactful healthcare-related technologies, services, and devices in a clinical environment at selected first-class hospitals around the world.
The goals of the collaboration are to stimulate transnational partnerships, accelerate the availability of medical innovations to the public, introduce Israeli health care technology to global markets, and advance the development of discoveries for the benefit of patients all over the world.
Successful applicant companies will receive funding directly from the Israel Innovation Authority, in addition to access to the partner hospital’s resources and expertise in clinical care, clinical studies, and R&D activities.
