Source and co-develop solutions

Through a collaborative, open innovation process, and a global network of entrepreneurs, investors and incubators, we'll help your organization find innovative solutions to business challenges and capitalize on new opportunities.

Build innovation capacity

Through classroom-based and immersive experiences, we introduce corporate managers and executives to rapid prototyping and user-centered product design and development and help them operate more like entrepreneurs.

Solve complex problems

We’ll help your organization gain an understanding of how technology is changing healthcare, how to create a 360-degree view of your strategic imperatives, and how to identify where to look for next-generation opportunities.

MATTER Challenges

A MATTER Challenge is a call to action to source innovative solutions that solve key business challenges healthcare companies face. Challenges help partners tap into entrepreneurial talent at the regional, national or global level with outcomes ranging from potential pilots to opportunities for co-development.

ACCESS

ACCESS helps corporate partners find startups working on solutions that could help solve their business challenges. Based on a partner’s specific interests, the MATTER team curates a group of entrepreneurs to meet with the partner’s team in a series of back-to-back company presentations.

Inside/Out

This program helps our partners change the lens through which they view their business challenges. In these interactive workshops convened by MATTER, groups of diverse stakeholders map a 360-degree perspective of both the problem and potential solutions. Based on insight and input from relevant innovators within our community, we make tactical recommendations to help partners meet those objectives and build action plans to take back to their organizations.

Customized programming

We build custom roundtables and other engagements based on your organization’s unique needs, pulling from the collective expertise of our broad community to help you gain the most valuable insights.

Partner success

"Being exposed to the innovative entrepreneurial space is an opportunity for us to think differently about our business and how we approach the problem we’re trying to solve."


"The incubation program at MATTER helped our team accomplish in 12 weeks what would have taken 12 months inside the walls at HQ."
