The Making More Health Business Accelerator is a structured business growth program aimed at social entrepreneurs with novel health sector solutions. There are two engagement phases offered by the program.
Phase 1, called the “Pilot Phase”, runs for 12 months and focuses on supporting entrepreneurs to:
- a) identify strategic challenges and/or opportunities related to the growth, sustainability and impact of their social enterprises
- b) co-create and test relevant solutions.
Phase 2, called the “Scale-up Phase” also runs for 12 months and focuses on supporting participants to scale up successful solutions from the first phase of engagement. In both phases, participating entrepreneurs are provided with access to technical support from Boehringer Ingelheim employees, strategic networks, financial resources, and a platform to collaborate, learn and engage with fellow social entrepreneurs and other ecosystem actors.
