StartUp Health Receives Two Year Grant from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to Accelerate Health Innovation in Underserved Communities

StartUp Health, a global startup platform accelerating digital health and wellness innovation, has received a $500,000 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to educate healthcare startups and improve health and wellness in underserved communities.

The StartUp Health Education Program for Entrepreneurs will launch in stages over the next two years, and provide a scalable platform that will help educate thousands of emerging health technology entrepreneurs on how to accelerate and scale their businesses by focusing on markets that often don’t have early access to new healthcare technologies. The long-term initiative will create free resources for startups such as an online curriculum, educational tools and an expert network, and will make it easier for digital health entrepreneurs to develop pilot programs in these underserved communities and build products and services to meet the unique needs of these communities.

“The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has made it possible for StartUp Health to create a scalable program to educate a generation of health innovators about opportunities in underserved communities,” said Unity Stoakes, President and co-founder of StartUp Health. “This partnership comes at a critical moment, because the new solutions being created over the coming years must address the needs of these communities in order to truly transform healthcare.

“StartUp Health will bring innovation to the providers and patients who are too often overlooked in product and customer development strategies,” said Paul Tarini, Senior Program O
