See you all on January 30th!
Ben will talk about how the scandinavian marketplace could serve as great testing ground for european/german HealthIT companies. He will also report from his experiences of e.g. the HealthXL incubator set up (Health 2.0 is official Partner), and the Healthbox London graduation event. He will also introduce SilverBullet, who creates the first telemedicine open source platform, applicable for the ecosystem in DK.
Ben is educated academically in business & entrepreneurship - before active in Lifescience regulatory consulting, Ben co-founded & worked as CEO of a Swedish health innovation tech spinoff. After failing and recovering, accepting failure wasn't an option & he continued making a change via HealthIT innovation and networking. Currently he runs a Scandinavian Health 2.0 Network helping new HealthIT companies to find the right resources, raise funding, help to integrate and validate concepts - while helping out at EU/US Health IT incubator programs (such as HealthXL).
