Global partners are existing digital healthcare and medical device businesses that are currently doing business outside the US and are seeking to expand into America. The Hub provides a footprint for these companies, as they develop their US business. The Hub offers office space, allowing for full clerical and administrative corporate functions consistent with an established US company, including premium conference space for both group meetings and client visits. Global partners have complete access to all Hub professional staff for consultations, introductions and guidance as needed. Engagements are typically for 12 months, but the timeline may be variable. Rates are based on the specific needs of the global partner companies.
Local start-ups are early stage (pre-seed through series A funding) digital healthcare and medical device businesses that are seeking the resources provided in an incubator setting. These resources include office space, conference space, administrative support and consulting services. Local start-ups are either already based in the region or have plans to establish a business presence in the Greater New Haven area. The resource requirements of these members are variable, and our staff will design a program specifically suited to the needs of your company. Rates are tailored to the specific needs of the local start-up companies.
Portfolio companies are early stage digital healthcare and medical device businesses that are currently supported by one of The Hub partners (HealthVenture, Bridge Innovations and Origami Innovations). All portfolio companies have complete access to all resources of The Hub. Engagement periods will be from 6 months to one year. Financial support for portfolio company members is provided by the supporting partner directly to the team.
Student Teams are digital healthcare and medical device businesses that are in their earliest stages, with minimal or no funding. These companies may be at the ideation stage or later. Teams are sourced from the local academic environment, including but not limited to: Yale University, Southern Connecticut State University, Quinnipiac University, University of New Haven, Albertus Magnus College, Gateway College, The University of Connecticut, Bridgeport University, Sacred Heart University, Fairfield University and regional secondary schools. These teams are chosen by The Hub Board of Directors and may include faculty members from the school as advisors and mentors. The length of engagement will be from four to six months. Student teams are supported directly by The Hub and its academic partners.
