Entrepreneurship + Innovation @ HEALab

In partnership with ASU’s E+I programs, the development of the College of Nursing and Health Innovation's Health Entrepreneurship Accelerator Lab (ASU E+I @ HEAL) is the first-ever accelerator for students, faculty and the community at ASU to launch initiatives that focus entirely on health and healthcare solutions. Through outreach, programming, networking, strategic partnerships and mentorship, the lab supports startup activities by connecting students to its own resources, the knowledge base of the expert faculty and the resources of the university and community.
