MATTER launches new membership tier to support more healthcare innovators

Turnkey resources now available on demand to help innovators develop and build healthcare businesses

October 5, 2023, CHICAGO — MATTER, the premier healthcare incubator and innovation hub, has launched Flex, a new membership tier that offers healthcare innovators immediate access to tools and resources to help grow their skills and advance their healthcare businesses on their own time, at their own pace.

The new Flex membership includes access to an online curriculum with 150 modules and more coming soon, a directory of vetted professional services firms, a library of templates, frameworks and contracts, and limited access to mentors. The resources are available 24/7 to Flex members on MATTER’s member portal.

In addition to the Flex membership, MATTER also offers a hands-on, “Select” membership, that includes all the resources of Flex, plus extensive support to raise capital and gain traction in the market, access to two dozen executives-in-residence, a network of more than 150 mentors and exclusive forums with investors and industry leaders. The Select membership is available by invitation or through an application process.

“MATTER can now provide both a high-touch experience to Select members and simultaneously support all healthcare innovators and entrepreneurs looking for support to develop their businesses,” said Steven Collens, CEO of MATTER. “Our new Flex membership provides turnkey access to tools and resources with the potential to empower every healthcare innovator.”
