What we're about
GIANT = GLOBAL INNOVATION AND NEW TECHNOLOGY
What is GIANT Health?
An international community of people whose business is health, centred on an annual very large flagship event and supported by an ongoing stream of knowledge and connection sharing, to drive healthcare improvements and value from innovation.
To improve the health and well-being of people around the world,
By promoting and facilitating innovation in healthcare technology,
And supporting health-tech entrepreneurs.
Our domain focus
HEALTH . TECH . BUSINESS.
Within this, our mission (why we exist) is to:
Inspire anyone whose business is health, to
Connect with important and innovative opportunities that will
Accelerate their commercial success and
improve health outcomes faster.
GIANT Health serves its community mainly by a single significant annual event:
The GIANT Health Event (currently London, November) http://www.gianthealthevent.com
The “promise” of the event
“The most important and valuable health-tech innovation event in Europe.”
We scour our community to curate the most novel and interesting developments in emerging technologies (now to 5 years) and the entrepreneurs and business who are applying these to health to inspire new possibilities
There is no “blockbuster” dedicated Health event in Europe – but we’re on the journey to deliver this. We are a magnet for entrepreneurs and those who want to collaborate with them and support them – we offer a platform for the whole ecosystem to connect to grow.
Innovation has no value unless it reaches the market. And most events end with the closing drinks. GIANT is different. You don’t just attend an event – you join a vibrant, collaborative community, whose shared mission is to improve health outcomes faster. The whole GIANT team works actively throughout the year within the health tech ecosystem, so we can enable members of our community to accelerate their health tech business goals.
