Enabling the healthtech sector to get the support they need to advance, de-risk and accelerate their innovations.
What is the HealthTech Activator (HTA) and what are the benefits of using it?
The HTA is a coordinated, ecosystem-wide support mechanism for early-stage founders and companies in NZ’s healthtech sector.
The HTA makes it easier for healthtech companies to find and access the support they need to turn their health innovations into successful businesses. In doing so, it aims to advance, de-risk and accelerate the commercialisation of innovation in NZ’s healthtech ecosystem.
Who is HTA for?
HTA is for any individual, business or entity looking to realise a commercialisation opportunity in healthtech. This ranges from scientists undertaking research in our universities and Crown Research Institutes to clinicians working in our hospitals, to entrepreneurs who recognise an unmet need but who may have a limited healthcare background.
Commercialisation opportunities in healthtech happen at all development stages in our healthtech ecosystem: from a clinician with the kernel of an idea for a business to an established company with products or services already in-market.
