Nex Cubed’s Digital Health Accelerator is a customized, semi-remote, four-month startup accelerator focused on pairing technically, clinically, and operationally talented founders with Healthcare subject matter experts that work with teams on a daily basis, preparing the startups for investment and enterprise readiness.
Healthcare is in a crisis globally.
It costs too much, is often unavailable to those who need it most, is not personalized for even those who can afford it, uses legacy software systems or paper, pencils and fax machines, creates walls between patients and their care teams, is driving physicians to burn out in their peak years . . . should we go on?
However, we stand at a moment of monumental change. For the first time since the advent of the vaccine or clean water, we have the opportunity to develop healthcare solutions leveraging software and data that can improve outcomes and lower costs.
Digital healthcare has the potential to and is transforming how, where, and to whom healthcare is provided, the quality of that care, bending the cost curve and putting patients and their care teams at the center of healthcare.
The Nex Cubed Digital Health Accelerator drives commercial adoption of transformative healthcare solutions and prepares founding teams for their next round of institutional financing.
Our Digital Health Accelerator is not for everyone. We are not a one size fits all boot camp startup factory. We do not offer fancy-sounding startup classes led by folks that you never see before or after the class. We do not put you in a room full investors and let you sink or swim on your own. We do not force founders to leave their family and homes for four months and pay double rent in expensive cities.
The Nex Cubed Digital Health Accelerator program is semi-remote program based in San Diego, CA. We are in San Diego because it is at the epicenter of healthcare innovation (and because it is always 72 degrees). Because our program is semi-remote you do not have to move to San Diego to be a part of the program. You can fly in for our kick-off, mid-term meeting, and Showcase events in San Diego or you have the opportunity to work out of our oceanfront offices in La Jolla for the duration of the program, it is up to you. In addition, teams have the opportunity to utilize our office in the heart of San Francisco or New York.

Investor Advisory Board
