An intense 5-day session at the spectacular new Digital Catapult Centre near King’s Cross in London for companies working in digital health, health wearables or with health data. This is an opportunity to receive hands-on help with your specific issues around growth and scaling from our network of high-calibre experts, in partnership with Capital Enterprise, The Mobile Academy and UCL.
The Digital Health Pit Stop will:
· Refresh your approach to creating breakthrough digital products
· Benchmark your service against industry standards and peers
· Boost your performance metrics
· Obtain exclusive access to partners, new markets and funding opportunities
This is not a conference, not a course, nor is it an incubator. It is designed to give you deep expertise and 1-to-1 sessions with world-class experts to accelerate your product development and growth. The Digital Catapult is one of a network of Catapult centres with initial funding from the UK government specifically to unlock challenges in data innovation and accelerate businesses to market, and the Pit Stop is one of the main platforms we have for delivering that mission.
We’ll be tweeting about the event by mentioning the #HealthPitStop hashtag.
After introductory quick pitches to the group, Monday is all about designing your product, led by the team from The Mobile Academy. We have talks and “war stories” from successful entrepreneurs and sessions on design thinking, UX and user research. We have a group of experts and leading designers for one-to-one sessions on gamification, user experience, testing, behaviour change.
Evening: Introductory drinks with attendees
Tuesday is led by Capital Enterprise. The talks and workshops go beyond the basics to seeing how you can apply lessons from lean startup business models to your issues. The afternoon has a focus on growth hacking, performance measurement, metrics and targets with leading VCs, entrepreneurs, successful CTOs and legal advisors attending the one-to-one sessions.
Wednesday is our day to dive deep into the healthcare sector. The morning has workshops on RCT and pilot trial design, taking a pragmatic view of getting your product validated. The afternoon is all about meeting potential partners and one-to-one mentoring, with attendees across healthcare companies, mobile operators, big internet, health insurance, NHS and other relevant government organisations.
Evening: Networking drinks with attendees and partner organisations, by invitation only – a chance to get some business done
On Thursday we’ll have hands-on workshops on cybersecurity essentials and handling personal data from our leading experts at the Digital Catapult, followed by one-to-one technical sessions covering those topics in more detail as well as machine learning, data science, visualisation and big data. The security sessions will be split to cover both introductory and more in-depth material.
Friday sees us in the spectacular auditorium at the newly opened Digital Catapult Centre for an afternoon of pitches and presentations. The audience will include healthcare corporates, investors, government agencies, journalists and the startup community. This event is publicised separately to a larger audience as part of the Digital Catapult Launch Season.
Our new Digital Catapult Centre has been designed for this kind of intense workshop experience. We have two large dedicated studio rooms, many informal meeting areas and dedicated hot desk space for all attendees. The days are designed to allow plenty of breaks to catch up with things and conduct separate meetings – often much of the value is what happens between the sessions. There’s plenty of coffee and wifi. At the end of the event attendees will also gain contributor status with the Digital Catapult that has ongoing benefits including access to our Centre with meeting rooms and hot desks.
£250 + VAT per person for the full 5 days.
We have a small number of places to sign up for individual days as well, and while those are available you’re free to sign up to multiple individual days. For this option see the separate listings for each day: Monday Design Day, Tuesday Business Day, Wednesday Health Day and Thursday Data Day. You can also come watch the final day demos and pitches.
