Who We Are

We know how to build your company into a sustainable business

The IPHA team has a documented track record of starting, building, commercializing, growing, and investing in and delivering exits for medical technology companies. We have delivered superior returns to our investors and strategic partners. We also have extensive experience in recruiting and mentoring exceptional, impact-oriented management teams.

IPHA offers an intensive, customized program on the campus of the Inova Center for Personalized Health (ICPH) in Fairfax, VA. During the program, companies will work closely with the IPHA team to evolve initial stage prototypes to validated products, mature business models, and go-to-market plans for their healthcare technology solutions. The program includes modules in these disciplines:

  • Product validation
  • Customer acquisition
  • Capital planning
  • Investor development
  • Talent recruitment
  • Board development
  • Regulatory & quality compliance
  • Reimbursement strategies
  • Clinical evaluation

In contrast to most accelerator programs, the IPHA partners operate the program as an investment fund and focus on achieving specific milestones. We invest in companies on a rolling basis. IPHA partner performance is linked to the return on investment delivered by the portfolio of IPHA companies.

Inova is a major healthcare system and research institution that serves more than two million people each year and has over 16,000 employees. Inova is the home to the Inova Heart and Vascular Institute (IHVI), Inova Translational Medicine Institute (ITMI), Inova Neuroscience Institute, Inova Schar Cancer Institute, Inova Children’s Hospital and the Inova Center for Personalized Health.

IPHA is located on the campus of the Inova Center for Personalized Health in Falls Church, Virginia.
