The Health Impact Accelerator (HIA) is a program that prepares participants to become social entrepreneurs. During the HIA they are introduced to the added value – and the challenges – of social entrepreneurship. Moreover, they translate their idea into a solid business case. Throughout this process, coaches and support are available.

In ten weeks you will become acquainted with various aspects and parties of social entrepreneurship. The program consists of a series of five events with different themes.


A team of highly experienced and motivating coaches will guide you in this. In the meantime, you will receive weekly coaching from this team, so that you can make rapid progress. The program concludes with a closing event, during which you present the end result to a group of social investors, fund managers and experienced SME entrepreneurs with innovative ideas.

During the HIA you will become acquainted with the added value – and the challenges – of social entrepreneurship in the field of health. In this way you meet interesting experts by experience, where their idea has succeeded – or not. You will meet other inspiring social startups that are working on ‘health’ and ‘liveability’ in an innovative way. In addition, you in turn inspire them and countless other SMEs who are present during the workshops and the closing event.
