Partnership

We believe collaboration between entrepreneurs and industry leaders is the fastest and most effective way to bring new solutions that improve life and lives to market. The diversity of our community is the source of our collective innovation. So whether you’re part of a health system, university, corporation, agency, or nonprofit, we’d love to hear from you. Benefits of MATTER partnership include:

  • Access to innovation: Through a global network of entrepreneurs, investors, and incubators, and a collaborative, open innovation process, we help established companies and health systems find innovative solutions to their business challenges.
  • First looks at new trends: We help our partners understand how technology is changing healthcare, where to look for next-generation opportunities, and how to identify adjacent possibilities.
  • Executive education: Through standard and custom offerings, we introduce corporate managers and executives to rapid prototyping and user-centered product design and development, and help them operate more like entrepreneurs.
