Vertical × IBM Fast Track

Vertical and IBM will be scouting during the next months for the most promising startups in the health field. The selected teams will get the opportunity to participate in Vertical X IBM Fast Track.

In addition, the startup teams will get access to mentoring from the IBM team, their deep healthcare industry skills, as well as technical expertise, support with business planning and support in case of growing internationally. Apart from providing solid technology for start-ups to build their solution on, which otherwise might be quite expensive, cooperation with IBM will bring additional credibility and routes to market.

All startups developing solutions ready for the health and wellbeing industry (from medical down to wellbeing apps) and willing to cooperate with IBM are eligible to apply.

The key attention will be paid to the readiness of the solution/service/product, innovation, and potential to add value to IBM enterprise partners.
