The Health Innovation Programme (HIP) is an intensive 3 day course for innovators and SMEs starting or building a healthcare business.
Run in conjunction with SETsquared, the Global # 1 University Business Incubator, this course includes modules on the NHS as a marketplace, business planning, business valuations, funding sources, and how to pitch to investors. The course ends with a real pitch to a panel of local experts, and of course constructive feedback from a room full of critical friends.
Previous delegates (HIP’sters) have found the course enjoyable, challenging and productive. For some this course has provided a launchpad directly into the Southampton Science Park Catalyst Centre, where they continue to grow their company in a nurtured, supported and free environment.
“I attended the 3 day HIP hosted by Wessex AHSN and found all 3 days incredibly beneficial. The speakers and workshops really helped me understand the complexities of bringing a solution to the market, and other attendees had a wealth of experience both in and out of healthcare enabling all innovators in the room to bounce ideas around and get feedback instantly. I strongly recommend this course for anyone with an idea, start-up, or solution for the healthcare market”.
Will Britton, Founder and CEO of Inclusive Media Solutions
