Applications to Join the ABHI US Accelerator’s 2022 Cohort Now Open

Posted on: 13th August 2021

Now in its fourth year, the ABHI US Accelerator, conducted in partnership with the Dell Medical School in Austin, Texas, is aimed at UK medical device, diagnostic and digital health companies looking to access the US healthcare landscape.

The 12-month programme of support provides companies with the opportunity to define and strengthen their US strategy, de-risk market entry and grow their US business by utilising ABHI’s advice, expertise and connections within the country.

The programme facilitates introductions to hospital, clinical, and supply chain leaders, enabling companies to liaise directly with decision-makers to discuss their products and services. In addition, participating companies enjoy exclusive access to ABHI’s full year-round programme of trade missions and virtual activity across the US.

Since its establishment in 2017, the ABHI US Accelerator has led to multiple international research collaborations and new business generated for UK industry. Offering nationwide support, and drawing on the relationships and connections built up across the US, the programme has been expanded over the years and is now supporting 30 companies to drive their operations. Centred in Texas, and with participants able to make full use of ABHI’s dedicated workspace and office at the Dell Medical School, with access to their facilities and support from senior faculty, the programme is the ideal springboard for access to other key states.

“Being part of the ABHI US Accelerator programme has really helped us understand the US healthcare landscape. This has proven extremely valuable in our go-to market strategy. It has also given us access to providers and hospital systems that we would not have been able to on our own. I would highly recommend any company wishing to drive sales success in the USA to sign up.”
