How It Works
The 2023 Community Health Incubator is sponsored by the Humana Foundation and powered by SEED SPOT. Our Incubator partner SEED SPOT is a 501(c)3 entrepreneurship support organization which, since 2012, has helped over 3,000 founders raise over $122M in capital and generate over 5,300 jobs.
The Incubator will guide up to six Startup Founders through the 12-week program where participants will benefit from the expertise and collaboration with the VOA network, gain business training and tailored mentorship, and engage in health equity training.
If you are interested in applying for the 2024 cohort, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The VOA Futures Fund Community Health Incubator provides each startup company with a $25,000 grant and expert mentoring to support the continued development of their business. VOA National staff, Futures Fund Board of Directors, and the Incubator’s extraordinary Advisory Board help to identify pilots and joint venture opportunities these companies can have with VOA Affiliates and other strategic partners across the country. By participating in the Incubator, each company is also eligible for a potential follow-on investment of up to $200,000.
