On September 14th, Health Enterprises Network (HEN) launched it’s third theme/project initiative focused on Business Development & Economic Growth with the event “Entrepreneurs: Louisville’s Key to Economic Growth in Healthcare”. The driving message behind the event was that entrepreneurs are vital to a city’s economy and that they need corporate engagement to innovate business and drive the health-related economic growth of the region. As part of this event, HEN launched it’s HEN VIP (Very Innovative Pioneer) program, an ongoing initiative designed to bridge the gap between entrepreneurs and existing healthcare organizations.

What does it mean to be a HEN VIP?

HEN VIPs are health-related entrepreneurs who reside permanently on the HEN website, providing a directory for the healthcare community to access your company website or landing page, key contacts and company description.

All HEN VIP benefits are provided free of charge. The main aim of the initiative is to extend HEN’s resources to the entrepreneurial community to provide new opportunities for business growth and collaboration.

HEN VIP benefits include:

  • Drastically reduced registration rates for HEN events
  • Inclusion in the HEN VIP printed directory, which will be provided to HEN Board of Directors and all attendees of the September 14th “Entrepreneurs” event
  • Listing on the HEN website, with links to main company contacts and website (if applicable) so that health-related companies can learn more about your product or service
  • Future opportunities to engage with HEN leadership through mentor programs, inclusion in HEN committees and investor activities, and more benefits to be developed!

Why should you submit your application?

Nowhere else will you have this kind of opportunity to connect and engage with the top healthcare leaders in the area. HEN is the only place where you’ll find the single largest concentration of decision makers in one place. HEN is focusing its energies and leveraging our partnerships and 180 investor companies to shine the spotlight on entrepreneurs and the potential growth they represent to Louisville’s economy.
