What is the Neighborhood Incubation Program?

Neighborhood, the Innovation Center of VCLS, is the first regulatory science focused Innovation Center for HealthTech companies.

Neighborhood offers regulatory support in the form of a year long incubation program to accompany and accelerate the development of young startups. We help you identify your technical and regulatory needs, thereby taking you to your next significant valuation milestone, minimizing risks, and maximizing your potential value. Integrating early regulatory elements in your development plan gives you a great head start!

In the Full Incubation Program, you will follow bespoke regular mentoring sessions with experimented mentors in both the EU and US markets. Neighborhood equips you with valuable resources such as our office spaces, fast access to specialist consultants, and our vast network. Our network will give you access to key opinion leaders and investors within our organized workshops, and events, such as the highly anticipated annual trip to Boston, where entrepreneurs meet key stakeholders and investors of the Bostonian innovation ecosystem.

If you are interested to join, or if you have a question, do not hesitate to get in touch!
