In the period following the match, the UCSF Health Hub Connect Navigator will periodically touch base on the connection to ensure the connection is working well for both sides.
In the earlier days of digital health, we hosted a program called Health Hub Connect which matched startup entrepreneurs with the advisors and mentors they needed to help them grow and scale. Over five years, we made thousands of successful matches and helped healthcare founders grow their businesses. As the digital health landscape matured, we retired the program to focus on other initiatives and choose to instead rely on our twenty international accelerator and incubator partners to provide the mentoring and advice.

“I joined as a UCSF Navigator because I am passionate about sharing the lessons from our research with the digital health community to help founders promote health for all. UCSF Health Hub enables me to engage with the broader digital health community.”
“UCSF Health Hub connects me with talented entrepreneurs, organizes valuable networking opportunities, and hosts stimulating speakers who explore the future of health and medicine. This is invaluable to me in my role as a startup advisor, angel investor, and physician at UCSF. I recently accepted the position of Medical Director at Scanwell Health, a Y Combinator company, highlighting the possibilities enabled by UCSF Health Hub.”
