The Nitzoz (Spark) Program

The Nitzoz (Spark) Program, administered by Rambam MedTech and funded in part by donors, was established to bridge the gap between invention and commercialization. It enables Rambam-based projects to achieve early technical milestones leading to follow-on investments.

Founded in 2012, the program’s vision is to nurture promising innovations into successful products for the benefit of patients worldwide. To that end, funds are provided to determine feasibility for very early stage projects with a high probability of success, capable of reaching a pre-defined milestone to facilitate commercialization and continued development.

A committee of established researchers and leaders from the medical industry examines the proposals to decide who will be considered for support. Each selected proposal is additionally supported by appropriate professional staff, providing assistance, counsel, and developing a related business proposal (where appropriate).
