There are a couple of healthtech events coming up that may be of interest to you. The first is a health design workshop in Cambridge on 4 May (please apply by 29 March) and the second is a Digital Health Forum taking place at the Royal Society of Medicine on 11 June, which is a must if you are a digital health SME raising money. Please read on for details.
We haven't scheduled our next meetup yet, but if you're keen to do a demo or a lightning pitch then please get in touch. I'm in ideaSpace day and night if you ever want to drop in for a chat!
