How HS. Scale Works

The Selection Process

The Unfair Advantage For Your Growing Company

The HS.Scale programme is not an accelerator or incubator programme for start-ups - it is a scaling programme designed to meet the needs of your high-potential company by working with you to develop new sales channels, access new supply chains, selling into the NHS and scaling your business globally. The programme is exclusive and we only select the best companies to join HS.Scale.

The competitive selection process is open-ended, meaning that you can apply at any time. The selection process features an online application to give us an idea about the stage and size of your company together with what products you sell and whether they will benefit our partners and patients. Shortlisted companies will then be invited for interview.

Who Is It For?

The HS.Scale programme determines impact by commercial success and the quantifiable financial benefit to both companies and our corporate partners. The entry criteria for HS.Scale is that your company is already commercially viable, that your founders, board and shareholders are committed to scaling your company and that you feel your product or service can benefit patients and health.
Our overall goal is to tackle global health challenges through innovation and technology and so we are agnostic to the size of your company. Our priority is bringing great products to market that can help to make health spend sustainable and provide benefit to patients.

We Want To Sell Into The NHS

HS.Scale is unique in that our team have specific expertise at selling into the largest global healthcare provider.
Both large multi-national companies and smaller growth-stage companies can offer benefit to the NHS and we will help you navigate procurement channels, connect with dealmakers and talk the right language to ensure success.
