Why Join UCSF Health Hub Connect?

At UCSF Health Hub we are driven by our mission to help early stage companies scale and grow in order to accelerate the next generation of healthcare innovation and improve upon the patient experience and outcomes at every level of healthcare.

We built our UCSF Health Hub Connect platform to drive this acceleration of healthcare innovation.  At UCSF Health Hub Connect, we have a network of thousands of advisors who are either key opinion leaders, physicians, luminaries, serial entrepreneurs or investors that provide early stage healthcare companies the necessary tools for success.  Through our proprietary matching platform we are able to successfully match companies with the perfect advisor for growth and advisors with companies that fit their backgrounds, interests and skill sets.

In addition to our proprietary matching platform, we are excited to also offer our UCSF Health Hub Connect companies exclusive benefits that are tailored to help you grow and scale: 

  • Wilson Sonsini First Program: Access to complementary legal consultations - including free incorporation and formation documentation - across the five essential building blocks for early-stage companies
  • Discounted DocSend subscriptions: Sign up to receive up to 90% off your annual DocSend plan

Apply today! By applying as a company or an advisor you are only a few steps away from your first match.

How Do I Sign up for UCSF Health Hub Connect?

Apply Today as a Company: If you are an innovative healthcare focused company that has received funding to date (from either non-dilutive or dilutive sources) we welcome you to apply for UCSF Health Hub Connect.  As a first step, please start by creating a UCSF Health Hub Connect profile.  Each profile is reviewed by the UCSF Health Hub team and approved only if the two above parameters are met.  

Once approved, you will be prompted to write a concise brief, which provides a bit of background on your company but more importantly highlights your unmet need and what type of advisor is needed to allow your company to scale and grow.  Upon completing the brief, our proprietary UCSF Health Hub Connect matching algorithm and a dedicated UCSF Health Hub team member, your personal UCSF Health Hub Connect Navigator, will connect you to the advisor best suited for your needs within two-weeks, guaranteed!

Lastly, throughout this process your profile remains completely confidential and is only shared with the identified advisor.

Apply Today as an Advisor: As a first step please create your advisor profile, which highlights your experiences, expertise and special interests.  Once your profile is completed, you’ll receive notices of potential matches that are carefully curated in order to match you with companies that align with your skills and interests.

Upon being matched with a company, you can move forward and take advantage of our sample agreements to best maximize a successful outcome for both you and the company.  We advocate working directly with the matched company to finalize the terms and tenure of the advising relationship.

In the period following the match, the UCSF Health Hub Connect Navigator will periodically touch base on the connection to ensure the connection is working well for both sides.

In addition to the matches made through our proprietary matching algorithm, we update the below table with our most exciting companies who are seeking advisors.  If you come across a company of interest, reach out to me at, to get connected with the company.
