Sparke Helmore is excited to announce we are partnering with Slingshot on their accelerator program for the third consecutive year. This year's program provides financial assistance and mentoring to help entrepreneurs get their health tech startup ideas off the ground or to help them scale up their new businesses.

Slingshot have also partnered with HCF, Australia's largest not-for-profit health fund, to offer up to $150,000 of investment and 12 weeks of mentoring from leading health tech experts in 2015.

Under the HCF Catalyst startup initiative, entrepreneurs will develop a business model, learn about financial modelling, work on branding and marketing their product, receive pitch coaching and also get access to investors.

For businesses that are looking to scale up, the HCF Catalyst scaleup initiative offers mentoring and coaching from experts, access to investors and may provide the opportunity to collaborate with HCF on business ventures, as well as potentially accessing their member database.

In addition to Sparke Helmore, Slingshot and HCF, the program is supported by Artesian Venture Partners, IBM Softlayer, the University of Newcastle and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Applications for this year's program close on Friday 27 November 2015. Click here to find out more about the program.
