CTS is a renowned healthtech accelerator, funded in 2008. As a not-for-profit organization, it relies on an ecosystem of partners and a global network of entrepreneurs, scientists, investors, tech and life sciences executives to achieve its mission: “Catalyze the growth of emerging health tech companies by providing bespoke acceleration services at the critical steps of early-stage commercialization and financing for the medtech and digital health sectors”.

District3 nurtures and develops multidisciplinary startup teams that harness emerging tech to create businesses with global impact. We look for the brightest of minds and we offer the most rigorous training. We bridge the knowledge, skills and resource gap between building a product and building a company.
