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.
Applications are now closed. If you are interested in applying for the 2024 cohort, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
