Innovate Health

26-27 June, Intercontinental Melbourne

Are you a startup in the digital health space looking to meet clinicians, investors, industry and/or government partners?

Innovate Health is about bringing together clinicians, tech innovators, government and industry leaders to drive collaboration on the development, commercialization and uptake of emerging technologies which benefit the health industry.  Crucial to the event is ensuring that emerging innovations really meet the needs of clinicians, address ongoing health challenges in Australia and are effectively commercialized.

The event also features a Startup PitchFest which is an interactive, high energy platform for showcasing startup innovation in healthcare and digging for pertinent details.

This is a dedicated opportunity for innovators to give a 5 minute pitch to a multidisciplinary panel of clinicians, investors, business leaders and mentors before taking 5 minutes’ worth of questions from the panel and audience. It’s a chance for medtech startups to put their company on the radar of the right contacts and for established players and health professionals to identify and partner with innovative teams.

Come along to join the event where digital innovation and healthcare leaders meet.
