DRIVEN Accelerator Hub to boost medical entrepreneurship in the Northeast

The University of Delaware has joined a network of institutions in the Northeast aimed at helping people live longer, healthier lives. DRIVEN, a new accelerator hub for medical entrepreneurship funded by $3.5 million from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), aims to help people live longer, healthier lives by increasing the number of quality medical startups in the Northeast, decreasing their time to market, and increasing their probability of success.

The DRIVEN Accelerator Hub also includes Celdara Medical, University of Vermont, Brown University, Dartmouth College, Maine Medical Center, Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory, University of New Hampshire, University of Rhode Island and Simbex, a medical devices design company.

The yellow states on this map are home to institutions participating in the DRIVEN Accelerator Hub.

It is one of four accelerator hubs across the country funded by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (part of NIH). Each hub is designed to provide entrepreneurial educational opportunities and experiences for innovators, and to develop and implement a structural plan to support medical entrepreneurship.
