Inova Personalized Health Accelerator Announces Spring Entrepreneur Education Program

Health System Expands Program To Train The Next Generation of Healthcare Technology Entrepreneurs

The Inova Personalized Health Accelerator (IPHA) announced today that it will expand its free educational program designed to teach first-time healthcare technology entrepreneurs how to grow successful companies. The Spring 2018 session will build on the curriculum provided during the Fall 2017 program. Inova’s Fall program supported 57 enrolled participants over a 14-week training period. Entrepreneurs interested in participating in the program are encouraged to apply via the IPHA web site.

“The demand for the Fall session greatly exceeded our expectations, demonstrating a significant unmet need,” said Rick Gordon, IPHA Director. “Inova is proud to continue to be the region’s key resource in developing this unique community of entrepreneurs.”

The seven-session curriculum will be delivered every other week beginning March 14, 2018 at the Inova Center for Personalized Health in Fairfax, Virginia.

“We are excited to make the Spring session a continuation of the Fall program.” said Michael Thomas, IPHA Director. “The support we received from our community of experts who teach our sessions was incredible, and we believe the Spring sessions will be even more impactful to the growing ranks of Inova Entrepreneurs.”
