The Norwegian Health Consortium offers specialized services targeting critical issues faced by health startups - services that commonly are out of reach due to high costs or lack of access to expertise. These “Service Packages” are now available to health startups all over the country at only 35% of the actual cost. There is a cap of 2 service packages pr company pr year.
Our Service Packages focus on challenges that startups face such as Product design and prototyping, production, regulatory issues, market and customer insight, and business plan validation. All Service Packages will be customized to the specific needs of the individual startup companies.
Application windows The yearly budget is split into two 6-month periods and we open for applications at the start of each period, respectively in January and August. The application window closes when all the funds for that period have been allocated. Companies that have not already received a service package in 2022 will be given first priority. Outside of this, the "first-come, first-served" principle applies.
Excellent news! SIVA has doubled the funds available in the next period! Also, the 100 000NOK cap has been lifted.
Great news! We recently released a new service package offering called Market Access Germany. You can find it under "Service Packages"
