Launched in early 2016, the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator Powered by Techstars is a collaboration to help today’s technology innovators turn their ideas into breakthroughs that can improve the lives of patients around the world. 

In just the last two years, our first three classes graduated from the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator Powered by Techstars and the outcomes were phenomenal. Since our program launched, we’ve welcomed 28 companies from 3 continents to our Innovation Space, and accelerated their product to market. 

The intensive, three-month bootcamp provides companies seeking to address healthcare's most pressing challenges with financial backing, training and exposure to a global entrepreneurial network that can speed ideas and solutions to the healthcare marketplace. If your company is creating hardware, software, medical devices or services that empower patients and healthcare professionals to track, manage or improve healthcare delivery, we want to meet you.

Applications for the fourth class open January 8.
