WHAT IS THE PROGRAM
W1 Forward is the Accelerator program powered by WERK1, a leading digital incubator in Munich. Our vision is to help startups to grow their idea into scalable business. W1 Forward aims furthermore to help startups to collaborate with corporations so that they can find new businesses and partnerships. The core program is set out for six months and is open to startups worldwide who want to revolutionize the industry.
Based on the successful start of Future X Healthcare Event (www.fxh2017.com) initiated by Roche in November 2017 we combined the power of Roche, leading the healthcare industry with WERK1 and Plug and Play, the world’s largest Accelerator and established a new Digital Health Accelerator at WERK1.
W1 Forward Digital Health Program is a tailored startup program, that helps entrepreneurs to explore and learn during the first four weeks (exploration phase) in the intensive and customized modules. In the Co-Creation Phase we set a frame, that helps entrepreneurs to grow and scale by collaboration with Roche Pilot “Owners” and connecting them into healthcare ecosystem.
The program supports startups from all over the world, that found a “match” with Roche experts – this is a crucial criteria for the teams, in order to get in!
Teams will use WERK1 installations for free and work hand in hand with renowned coaches, mentors and leaders of the industry, all worth €50.000.
