Numbers4Good, UCLB and Healthbox launch Health Social Innovators’ Fund

I'm really excited that Numbers4Good has partnered with UCLB (UCL’s technology transfer organisation) and Healthbox (the leading global health accelerator) to create the Health Social Innovators’ Fund supporting some of the UK’s best health social entrepreneurs who are creating solutions helping some of UK’s most vulnerable people. The Cabinet Office have announced today that their Social Incubator Fund is cornerstoning the fund; with the rest of the funding coming from Trafford Housing Trust and Janssen Healthcare Innovations.

We will run two programmes, one in late 2014 and one in 2015 and will be looking for outstanding health social entrepreneurs to support. Numbers4Good will be focusing on helping social enterprises become investment and contract ready; supporting them in winning their first contracts and then raising the investment to scale.
