Health Innovation Programme 2018

Health Innovation Programme 2018

SETsquared alongside the Wessex Academic Health Science Network (AHSN), will be providing a comprehensive business support programme to healthcare and life sciences ventures throughout their lifecycle.

The programme is open to all and is ideal for entrepreneurs with an idea for a health-based product or service and founders of early-stage ventures, as well as more experienced entrepreneurs launching a new product or venture.

This immersive and interactive 4-day training course will help you develop your business idea, analyse your market and potential customers, develop a compelling pitch and look at funding strategies. It culminates with the opportunity to pitch to a panel of investors and healthcare experts, who will provide invaluable feedback for you to take your business forward.

Sessions include:

how to write a great business plan, understanding the NHS as marketplace, getting to grips with company valuations, funding sources, and how to pitch for investment, understanding and explaining the value that your product will bring to healthcare customers, the regulatory and information governance standards that have to be met to bring a product to the healthcare market and how to tap into the national schemes available to support the adoption of innovation.

This is a personal skills development course that aims to enable individuals to take well-formed innovative proposals to business realisation.

Participation in this event is free of charge.
