Our pre-accelerator Beyond has enjoyed great success in Bulgaria. As a result, Junior Achievement and Novartis have decided to expand the application of the pre-accelerator by embarking on a collaborative project in Europe, to be piloted in the ECC region, aimed at leveraging technology and “start-up” thinking in the medical field.
By establishing a series of pre-accelerator hubs in digital health and innovation, we aim to generate a stronger ecosystem of innovators who will work to reimagine medicine as we know it.
One of the defining features of the future will be closer collaboration across sectors that have traditionally existed in separate and limited silos, and scaling-up local initiatives to regional and global levels. Tremendous potential for innovation and progress awaits those who master the ability to work in a network-centric fashion, and we intend to lead the way.
