Bendigo Health Accelerator (BHx)

The Bendigo Health Accelerator (BHx) will be the first regional health accelerator in Victoria and will commence in June 2020. The BHx program will provide early-stage health startup companies the opportunity to access a world class digital hospital to validate, test and potentially accelerate their startup into the health sector.

The BHx will operate in collaboration with the Melbourne Health Accelerator (MHx) under the Victorian Health Network Accelerator (VHNx) Project, funded by LaunchVic. 

LaunchVic is a Victorian Government initiative started in 2016 designed to support the startup ecosystem in Victoria.

Expressions of Interest applications have now closed and the review process is underway.

In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, the program delivery is being reassessed, with the option of a hybrid model – virtual and face-to-face delivery being a potential way forward. Please stay tuned for further updates surrounding this.
