This highly interactive event will be a mix of inspiring speakers and an exhibition of ready-to-go innovations for health and social care.
You will hear from local and national speakers (agenda to follow), who will set the local and national context, be able to meet innovators and view and try exciting innovations which have been designed to save the NHS time and money, enhance patient pathways and, most importantly, improve patient care. This will include exciting diagnostic innovations, virtual reality and many apps and platforms to help health and social care innovations.
There will also be the opportunity to view innovations that are being supported/promoted by the NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) and Innovation Technology Payment (ITP).
You will be able to meet the innovators and learn first-hand about their journey/experiences to date.
We expect this event to sell out, so please book as soon as you are able!
The Health Innovation Programme (HIP) is an intensive four 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.
The Health Innovation Program is part funded by a grant from the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF).
