Where can the accelerator take me?

The accelerator programme will provide you with three main outcomes that will fast-track your innovation to market.
  1. Roadmapping – This accelerator will give you the insight, knowledge and a roadmap to guide you through the complex journey of product development through to market. It will help you understand where your time and budget need to be focussed, how to structure a MedTech venture, how you can set appropriate goals and more importantly, how you can achieve them?
  2. Engagement – You can’t make this journey alone. Our programme will introduce you to individuals and networks with the knowledge and keys to open doors that are notoriously difficult to find and open. Expanding your network is a key step to getting to market successfully.
  3. Investment, Growth and Collaboration opportunities – At the end of the accelerator, if you are ready, you will have the opportunity to position your business in front of a network of individuals and institutes who can assist your growth.
