Accelerator Grant Program

The Innovation & Digital Health Accelerator (IDHA) is excited to announce its second round of Accelerator Grants to support innovation in health technology, including digital health and medical devices. Each year, Boston Children’s innovators will be awarded up to $250,000 in aggregate grant funding in addition to in-kind software or hardware development resources.

Building upon the success of the Innovestment Grant and the FastTrack Innovation in Technology (FIT) Award programs, previously administered by the Innovation Acceleration Program (IAP), the Accelerator Grant Program leverages new capabilities and expertise in software development and innovation strategy. This single application simplifies the innovation pathway for Boston Children’s employees, broadens the diversity of innovations supported, and grants access to a larger pool of resources.

Anyone from the Boston Children’s community with an idea is encouraged to apply. Applicants may be invited to meet with the Accelerator Team to discuss their submission. Our team will then work with you to define a commercialization or implementation pathway that will become part of the grant review process.
