Future of Healthcare Founder Residency

The Roux Institute's year-long Future of Healthcare Founder Residency is created to support entrepreneurs looking to transform the way communities, clinicians, health executives, and patients interact with and within the healthcare system. We make targeted investments and offer full-service support services to 10 of the top early-stage health-related ventures per year.

Designed in partnership with Northern Light Health and MaineHealth, the Roux Institute’s Future of Healthcare Founder Residency is the first of its kind in northern New England. Participants of the program receive a $50,000 investment and the opportunity to learn more and collaborate with top clinicians and healthcare experts, mentors, and growth-accelerating programming. Maine Venture Fund, the state’s venture capital fund, works with companies on-site and is also an investor in the program.

As part of our $50,000 investment in each company, Founders in the Residency have access to curated programming and mentorship from top experts and entrepreneurs in the field, free in-house Business, Design, and Legal services, and a peer community to accelerate their growth. Founders also benefit from our extensive network in the healthcare and payer space and access to our partner healthcare systems Northern Light and Maine Health, which together serve over 90% of Maine households.

Founders who are selected and receive investment will be co-located at the Roux Institute for twelve months (beginning April 2024).
