entrepreneurship@UBC is at it again.
The University incubator and accelerator has launched the Human Health Venture (H²V) Studio to leverage UBC’s deep pool of research by transforming human health innovations to impact through venture creation.
The studio launch marks the program’s own evolution as an academic incubator/accelerator, creating specialized verticals to work with innovators across industries.
entrepreneurship@UBC launched their first studio – the Climate Venture Studio – last year to support UBC researchers and innovators building breakthrough solutions to the climate emergency.
An extension of their foundational Venture Building programs, the studios act as an additional layer of specialized programming, mentorship and community to help create curated opportunities for ventures across industry verticals.
Led by Dr. Sean Lumb, Associate Director, the new H²V Studio will unlock access to UBC and the wider landscape’s thriving human health community.
The Human Health Venture Studio supports UBC researchers and scientists developing a scientific or technological innovation or disruption based in human health.
“Human health affects everyone and we are thrilled to be announcing the launch of our H²V Studio. The innovations coming from UBC are absolute game-changers for the human health sector, requiring entrepreneurship@UBC’s collective decades worth of venture building expertise to get research innovations to market and make positive, transformative change,” said Kari LaMotte, Managing Director, entrepreneurship@UBC.
Through in-depth venture building programming, access to lab and office space and advisory teams, including entrepreneurship@UBC’s own bench of Entrepreneurs in Residence, entrepreneurs tap into the healthcare landscape’s collective expertise and resources, working to catalyze their startup opportunity.
