Orange has joined forces with Sanofi, Capgemini and Generali to launch Future4care, a start-up accelerator which aims to facilitate the rapid deployment of e-health solutions and their availability on the market.
Designed as an Open Innovation ecosystem dedicated to Europe, Future4care will not only accelerate start-up development, but also create an Institute to produce digital health content. Start-ups (selected via a call for projects or spontaneous application) and Future4care partners will be able to use a 6,000m2 space in the heart of Paris once it opens in December 2021. A hosted start-up within the accelerator will benefit from personalized support for a themed Lab course, along with access to a partner ecosystem to facilitate design, testing, reliability and ultimately the launch of a concrete and innovative e-health solution.
This initiative will help Orange strengthen its position and expertise in the e-health sector, which is today largely supported through its Orange Healthcare line of business.
