Introducing TheHill 2021 Market Access Accelerator
TheHill is a leading digital health business support specialist and clinical network, based at Oxford University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, with a wealth of expertise in delivering regional and national programmes coupled with extensive support for entrepreneurs through our Market Access Accelerator. We turn ideas into reality, creating a flourishing ecosystem where SMEs and entrepreneurs thrive. We bring digital technology and new innovations to the NHS, by working with NHS Trusts, universities, digital developers, innovators and investors. Breakthrough innovation, which catalyses commercial and impactful technological solutions in healthcare, is our focus. Whether the approaches we enable are ideas from within the NHS, or from external companies, all of them seek to make the NHS more efficient and effective, support people and benefit patients.

We are looking for inspiring and innovative digital health companies addressing real issues in healthcare: successful applicants for the programme may be in the earlier or the growth stage of development. We aim to help these companies scale and commercialise.

The earlier stage cohort includes start-ups that have an idea, concept or early prototype and need help to refine the business model and determine their value proposition for clinicians and the NHS.

The growth stage cohort companies would be those who have a beta product with regulatory approval (or no need for it) and ready to set up a pilot, service evaluation or first sale.

Accelerator sessions will run for six months from May 2021.
