Consulto: The Vanguard Accelerator’s latest start-up

Biopôle SA is happy to announce that Consulto is the latest company to join the Vanguard Accelerator, its six-month acceleration programme to boost early-stage start-ups and projects.

Consulto is building the world’s first clinic specialised in virtual team-based care. It aims to transform outpatient care, making the journeys of patients with complex health needs easy, coordinated and efficient whenever interactions between different health professionals are needed.

As a participant in the Vanguard Accelerator programme, Consulto will benefit from Biopôle’s extended network and facilitated connections to digital health experts to refine their value propositions and business model. In addition, starting from this week, they will have access to desk space and meeting rooms at the beating heart of Biopôle’s Digital Health Hub. In parallel, Consulto will also benefit from financial support to carry out hands-on projects with H4, the Hub for innovation in health and care in Vaud.

The Vanguard Programme provides unparalleled access to clinical, technical, market and regulatory expertise.
