In the wake of the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, which the life sciences and healthcare industries relied on heavily, a gap in funding opportunities has left health tech startups struggling to secure capital. While long-term prospects for health tech are trending up according to the accounting firm Deloitte, particularly in the UK, such challenges could lead organizations to increasingly seek support from other sources outside of the financial industry.

A leading accelerator in Taiwan's burgeoning health tech space

As the health tech and biotech industries in Taiwan continue to expand, entrepreneurs and startups face growing cost-related challenges, particularly with inflation on the rise globally. This is particularly true for prototype development, but also extends to setting up manufacturing infrastructure.

"The success of health tech startups requires more than just steady capital; it also requires an extensive support network to assist with prototyping and manufacturing," notes Vivian Feng , Deputy Executive Officer of H.Spectrum+ . "This combination is exactly what we offer, and our expansion this year into cultivating health tech ideas directly from a more fundamental, on-the-ground source — individual healthcare providers themselves — demonstrates our commitment to the relentless spirit of innovation that our colleagues embody."

With a focus that covers biomedical tech, medical equipment, preventative medicine, precision medicine, and AI-powered smart healthcare, H.Spectrum+'s unique value proposition stems from its holistic support model. It offers a closed-loop platform with broad, diverse capabilities that have helped over 200 startups through utilizing FTC's extensive infrastructure for optimal outcomes. From strategies and tactics to funding and venture capital, prototype development, and manufacturing process optimization, H.Spectrum+ ensures all angles are covered for its partner organizations.

Recipe for success

One of H.Spectrum+'s success stories is Redeye Biomedical, a startup that specializes in optical detection techniques across smart health, food safety, and environmental protection. Redeye developed the world's first small-scale optical hematuria test analyzer, redeye 1 Plus-U, and received FDA approval for it in 2020. Following this initial success, H.Spectrum+ is facilitating the company's plans to expand further in Taiwan, China, and the US and to develop new technologies for urine protein detection and chronic conditions.

Another exemplary startup, AcroViz Technology, harnesses cutting-edge imaging technology for predictive brain health. Their AcroViz Axonal Brain Age – Brain Health Report was the first to adopt diffusion Magnetic Resonance Imaging (dMRI) and AI for an accurate, non-invasive brain health assessment, which shows promise for early detection of Alzheimer's Disease. An aspect of their technology has earned approvals from both the US FDA and the Taiwan FDA, and H.Spectrum+ is continuing to support their future plans to enter the US and EU markets and to develop a mobile MRI with proprietary brain age prediction through a multidisciplinary approach.
