SHI 2020 Bridge Program

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 SHI accelerator program was postponed. In an effort to keep startups moving forward on important global health issues, SHI created the Bridge Program.

The Sustainable Health Initiative Bridge Program was developed as an interim curriculum and engagement opportunity between high potential health and health care startup being considered for the full Sustainable Health Initiative Accelerator program.

The Bridge Program aims to advance high potential startups identified in preparation for their enrollment in the SHI accelerator when it can be launched virtually or safely in-person in Bangalore, India.
