We aim to create an environment where nascent ideas can be evaluated for their real world applicability (clinicians and scientists), feasibility (engineers), and market potential (entrepreneurs) simultaneously. We want to encourage the development and refinement of early ideas and provide information on concrete steps towards turning ideas into products and companies.
The event will feature a presentation by Blueprint Health, a start-up accelerator program with a large network of mentors in the healthcare space. A networking session will follow.
