About the Accelerator

Startupbootcamp Digital Health Chengdu is Startupbootcamp’s first China-based program dedicated to supporting and scaling 10 digital health startups.

Located in Chengdu, we are bringing our proven digital health focused program, in partnership with Thinkzone, to accelerate digital health startups as they develop solutions which increase access to quality of care, bridge the gap in the health care delivery system and reduce local medical costs.

We choose to base our first China-based program in Chengdu, as it is one of the fastest developing innovation centers in China. With a fast growing middle class and supporting policies for healthcare innovation, Chengdu is an ideal location for entrepreneurs to pilot digital solutions and scale it nationally and internationally.

Healthcare is a restricted and complex sector in China, which limits the speed at which entrepreneurs can scale. Entering into China’s hospital sector requires an understanding of the regulatory and political landscape and a strong network of medical professionals.

In partnership with the Chinese partner Thinkzone, a well-known player in science and technology in China with strong government connections, the program offers digital health entrepreneurs a faster route into the market.

Startupbootcamp China and its underlying programs will be led by Steven Tong, Managing Director of Startupbootcamp Asia, who had been serving as the Managing Director of Startupbootcamp Fintech Singapore for the past 2 years. Steven brings more than 18 years of experience in government, private sector and venture capital working with startups scaling their businesses.

Assisting Steven in the running of the Chengdu program will be Christina Pamela Christiansen as the Program Director. Christina has over 10 years of experience in business development, Chinese public management and lean startup processes. Passionate about growing entrepreneurs and improving the health services for Chinese people, she drives our hunt for China’s finest Digital Health startups.
