Prosper Birmingham Health Tech Accelerator Fund I, LP

Prosper is a Central Alabama non-profit focused on making Birmingham/Jefferson County, Alabama the most inclusive and thriving economy in the Southeastern United States.

Prosper created the Prosper Health Tech Accelerator and Fund, in partnership with nationally recognized accelerator operator gener8tor, and venture capital partner Redhawk Advisory, to identify, invest in and support diverse pre-seed founders that are using technology to deliver improved outcomes for patients, clinicians and healthcare enterprises in a way that is aligned with the overall mission of Prosper.

Prosper’s vision is to build a first-in-class Health Tech accelerator that invests in people and ideas that improve health outcomes for the most vulnerable of our citizens, while also growing economic opportunity and jobs for those populations that have traditionally been underserved.

The Accelerator/Fund seeks early-stage tech-enabled companies that are focused on solving a big problem relative to the delivery of healthcare, with attainable and specific milestones that lead to new funding, with a focus on founders who are coachable, adaptable and who have a bias towards experimentation.
