The four-week program will be delivered both virtually and in-person in 2023. Startups in the cohort will receive technical and business mentorship from AWS and ANDHealth experts, up to USD$25,000 in AWS credits, and collaboration opportunities with AWS healthcare customers, industry leaders, and members of the AWS Partner Network (APN). The program begins with an individual deep-dive assessment of each startup, who will then be immersed in a custom-designed curriculum with hands-on technical training and a cloud architecture review.
Through the accelerator, startups will experiment with AWS technologies and accelerate their growth with foundational knowledge of cloud architecture, operations, and data. Startups will also have the benefit of collaboration with many of our AWS healthcare customers and partners, who will provide valuable industry expertise and insights. The culmination of the program will be the AWS Healthcare Accelerator Australia/New Zealand for Aged Care and Digital Health demo day, where startups will showcase their technology to industry experts and investors.
The AWS Healthcare Accelerator Australia/New Zealand for Aged Care and Digital Health is being delivered in collaboration with Australia’s dedicated digital health commercialisation organisation, ANDHealth. The program is also supported by IRT Group, a large aged care provider, which will lead the curation and qualification of clear problem statements in the aged care space.
