Catalyst@Berkeley is one of the first student-led health-tech incubators geared towards enabling undergraduate students to solve tomorrow’s biggest health problems. The goals for Catalyst are to bring passionate students together to create heavily-needed health-tech products to market and improve lives. It teaches student-founders how to pick the right problems to solve (clinically-validated and with the right product-market-team fit). By the end of the incubation period, all teams are expected to be ready to scale with a top-tier accelerator program. Most importantly, Catalyst wants to provide students the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship in the life sciences and digital health fields through hands-on experience.
