The Health Innovation Programme (HIP) is an intensive four day course for innovators and SMEs starting or building a healthcare business.
Dates: Wed 3, Thurs 4, Mon 8 and Tues 9 July 2019
Location: Milford Hall Hotel, 206 Castle St, Salisbury SP1 3TE
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 Programme was really valuable. Understanding and accepting the complexities of commissioning, working out how we can work with the NHS, focusing in on customer needs and the importance of getting our processes right so our early adopters receive a really positive experience.
The programme provided a valuable opportunity to stop and reflect. The mentors were amazing and will be useful contacts going forward - I found the pitch training particularly valuable. It also makes you think about putting the infrastructure in place to scale your business.
I would advise other healthcare entrepreneurs to access all the support available to them. There’s no easy, quick route but the Health Innovation Programme will put you on the right track”.
