Companies:100% Help. 0% Equity.

We are a non-profit and here to serve.  We do not take any equity.

UCSF Health Hub is dedicated to helping our companies access the advisors and resources needed to scale and grow.  Our focus is to help our companies achieve their next milestones through a step-by-step approach.

Whether you are looking for a clinical or research partner to design and execute a pilot project, clinical validation through UCSF physicians, researchers or patient populations or access to high quality investors, mentors and advisors, UCSF Health Hub Connect is here to help connect you with allies for growth.


Here's how.

1. Sign up to UCSF Health Hub Connect and create a profile. We accept all healthcare-focused companies that have raised at least one round of capital (either non-dilutive or dilutive).

2. Complete a brief
– Create a compelling profile and a standout brief, with a sense of urgency.  Potential advisors will have the opportunity to view this brief ahead of a connection, so this is your opportunity to share your story and how you are disrupting healthcare about it.

3. The matching process -
Once your brief is completed and reviewed our matching platform programmatically creates a set of possible 'matches', that your Personal Navigator uses to identify the 'best' match, within two weeks, guaranteed. The Personal Navigator also ensures the success of each match by reaching out to your prospective advisor to confirm their interest, before connecting you.

4. Get matched - You will be informed by email once a match is identified.

4 . Graduate to the 'next' milestone. We call it moving up the innovation pyramid.

6. Repeat.

Once you have applied to Health Hub Connect as an advisor, you can create a profile that reflects your skills, expertise, domain knowledge and describe the kind of projects that interest you. Our matching platform will use this information to identify the best companies in need of your advice. Meanwhile, the Personal Navigator will refine this list to match you to only those companies that suit you best, once you consent.

Once matched, how and what you do is up to you and the founders. Your navigator will conduct periodic checks to ensure that the connection is mutually beneficial.
