AT EDGE, IDEAS MAKE
WE’RE ALLIES, GUIDES, AND PARTNERS.
In our Incubation studio, we’re working to create what’s never been done and improve what already exists. We also do the hard work of killing ventures that don’t accomplish what they set out to do — if an idea doesn’t solve a problem, we’ll keep exploring until we find one that does.
With the right approach,
transformation is repeatable.
Our Incubation studio follows an observable, customer-centric methodology that was inspired and shaped by Silicon Valley’s most successful entrepreneurs, startup incubators, and venture capitalists.
We begin the process by uncovering customer pain — the source of every improvement, development, or invention. Next, we determine how an idea solves that pain. And finally, we focus on how the solution becomes a viable business within our health system and beyond.
We work collaboratively, untraditionally, and decisively because our mission is urgent: to create a portfolio and pipeline of new ventures that take us all from where we are to where we want to be.
