Together with seven project teams in Stage 2, the BIH DHA program is currently supporting 14 project teams in the development of digital health products. In addition to funding, the support includes professional mentoring by international experts, access to networks of development partners, talent, industry partners and investors, as well as an interdisciplinary working environment in the BIH “Digital Labs” co-working space.

So far, nine spin-offs have emerged from the BIH DHA program.
