What is ScaleHealth? We are home to healthcare and life science startups looking for the resources to grow, succeed, and reinvest in their communities.
ScaleHealth Portal and Architect
What is the Portal? The ScaleHealth Portal is our members-only platform where you can access the Architect (the backbone of ScaleHealth and the key centerpiece for how we support you along your journey). Through the Portal, you can also request introductions to advisors, partners, and other community startups. Additionally, you can connect directly with the ScaleHealth team by utilizing the Concierge feature for any of your unique needs.
How can I change or update my company or membership information via the Portal? It is important to make sure your company profile is frequently updated with the most current information so that the ScaleHealth team can make the appropriate connections to help you move your innovation forward. You can easily update your company profile by clicking the “Your Profile” button on the left side navigation on the Portal.
What is the Architect?
The Architect is a series of insights, activities, and pieces of content tailored to your company and your stage – each one geared towards putting you in a position to capitalize on opportunities as they arise. Through the Architect, you’re able to meet other advisors and partners of ScaleHealth and understand exactly what investors, payors, and providers are looking for. The more you engage with this content and the people that the Architect recommends, the more you hone your product and hit key milestones.
How do I request introductions within the ScaleHealth ecosystem?
Introductions can be made via the Portal. Introductions are managed and handled differently depending on who you’re looking to meet with. In order for our team to process requests from all community members, you are limited to a maximum of 5 outstanding requests at any given time.
- For introductions to other community members, advisors or service provider partners: Browse the respective lists and select the “request an introduction” button for those whom you’re interested in meeting. Selecting the “request an introduction” button will alert the ScaleHealth team of your interest in connecting with that person/organization and we will follow up as soon as possible with the direct introduction via email. Please be sure to elaborate on your reason for requesting the introduction so that our team has the appropriate knowledge to properly facilitate the connection.
- For introductions to investors, providers, payors, etc: Browse the respective lists and select the “request an introduction” button for those whom you’re interested in meeting. Selecting the button will alert the ScaleHealth team of your interest in connecting with that organization. The ScaleHealth team will facilitate introductions based on how well the company information you provide us via the Architect matches with the needs/interest of that given partner. As you’re requesting the introduction, please be sure to elaborate on your reason for requesting the introduction so that our team has the appropriate knowledge to properly facilitate the potential connection. If the team determines that you are ready for a specific introduction, we will reach out to the investor or partner on your behalf and make a direct introduction to the organization via email if they indicate interest in meeting with you. You will be updated on the progress of our outreach via the Portal.
How are potential introductions evaluated?
Potential introductions are evaluated in a few different ways. The ScaleHealth team will observe your progress through Architect activities and review the financial/traction information you provide us on your company profile to determine if you’re at the right stage to meet with a given partner or investor. Similar to how we collect information from each company, we also keep a record of the areas of interest/needs for each partner in our ecosystem so that we can appropriately make connections. The ScaleHealth team will also take into consideration the reason why you’ve expressed interest in meeting with a certain individual or organization, so please try to be as detailed as possible as you’re requesting introductions or adding to your wishlist. Additionally, we will view the Velocity score on your profile to get a high-level overview of your company’s progress. This is all to say, keeping your company profile up to date with the most current information is crucial to receiving introductions! If our team needs more information to inform our decision to make introductions, we will reach out to you directly via email!
What is the timing of potential introductions?
The timing of introductions varies depending on who you’re requesting to meet. Our team can make introductions to advisors, service providers or additional community members within a few days, while introductions to partners like health systems, payors, investors, etc. may take a few weeks to materialize.
How can I increase my likelihood of receiving introductions to ScaleHealth partners, investors and advisors? The #1 way to increase your likelihood of introductions is to engage with the Architect by working through our series of tailored educational content and making sure your company information is up to date via your profile and Traction.
