The best ideas make you climb.

Getting the best help shouldn’t.

Elevating Utah’s Future Health Care Founders

We invest in a community of new voices and ideas to build a healthier future. Since Altitude isn't tied to a specific investor or institution, we can align resources around our startups’ needs in a community-based way, allowing us to bridge the gap for new founders.

Our goal is to bring together the best of public and private resources to elevate diverse founders to success—because we believe that everyone succeeds when you do.

Program Overview

In a field where the problems are profoundly complex, and innovation is transformative, founders need more than a lab to bring their technologies to patients. We aim for every Altitude Lab resident to be seed-funded and ready to transition into their own headquarters within 24 months.

That’s why we surround resident startups with cutting-edge tools, industry leaders, and top-tier investors to accelerate your path and boost the sophistication of your strategy.

Becoming a resident lets you

By connecting you with experts and seasoned entrepreneurs across the country, we make decades of industry knowledge accessible. With the support of our network, we aim to simplify the path of a complex industry. You will leave ready to navigate field-specific challenges like securing partnerships, managing clinical pathways, and more.

Connect With Investors

Every founder will need investors to fund, mentor, and connect their startup, but access to capital is the most cited opportunity gap for many nontraditional founders. Altitude Lab brings our partnered network of health care venture capitalists to you 40 days/year to build your network early in your startup’s development.
