NextHIT is interested in qualified and motivated mentors. As such, each mentor is asked to make a minimum contribution to the Houston Health Ventures (HHV) fund. In exchange for the contribution, and for the services provided as a mentor, NextHIT will facilitate equity grants from companies in the accelerator program. The minimum investment into the HHV fund also provides access for mentors to invest additional capital through HHV's side car fund. Please contact us if you are interested.
