VBHC Dragons’ Grant & Endorsement

Real Game Changers in Patient Value Creation on the Way to Becoming Future VBHC Prize Winners

The Value-Based Dragons’ Grant & Endorsement is developed in the interest of bringing together highly experienced early adopters of the Value-Based Health Care concept and pioneering early stage initiatives. The goal is to endorse the VBHC rough diamonds that need some shaping and grant the VBHC growth diamonds that need to scale-up in order to accelerate their VBHC intitiative. These nominees are the VBHC Prize winners of the future!

The Value-Based Dragons’ Grant & Endorsement 2021 will take place on May 18th at Buitenplaats Amerongen in Amerongen, either in-person or as a hybrid event. At the event five very promising initiatives of the category Grant and five promising initiatives of the category Endorsement will present their initiatives to an international jury with experts from different backgrounds. In the first round the nominees will have the opportunity to be consulted on pressing issues by the Dragons’ Den members that are most relevant to their initiative. Hereafter, the nominees will be able to process newly gained insights into their pitch before they take the (virtual) stage and start to pitch their initiatives.

The Dragons’ Grant winner receives support and advice in upscaling worthy of €10.000,-. Moreover, the winner will also able to pitch their initiative during the VBHC Prize on May 19th and benefit from all media attention and communication surrounding the event. This way, they build up momentum and we create traction for their initiative.
