Inova Entrepreneur Program

Twice yearly, we invite high-potential personalized health technology entrepreneurs to participate in our education program. The program is designed to provide entrepreneurs with a comprehensive set of skills required to execute the commercialization and growth of personalized healthcare technology companies. While we provide this program for free, our hope is that it will not only help drive the expansion of our innovation ecosystem, but also provide IPHA with the ability to get to know the participants better and qualify them for investment.  We anticipate that many of the investments IPHA makes will be in companies that complete this program.

The program occurs in the Spring and the Fall and is scheduled for 90-minute sessions that are held weekly in the accelerator in Fairfax, Virginia.

Time: 11:30 am to 1:00 pm (Doors open at 11:00 am, lunch will be served)

Location: 3225 Gallows Road, Building D, 7th Floor, Fairfax, VA 22031
(Use South Entrance near the Inova Fairfax Medical Campus)
*Parking will be marked
