Thursday 14 June 2018 | Hilton Hotel Auckland

9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.  (registration from 8.30am, close at 3.30pm for networking)

Innovation & Investment Workshop will once again introduce new or emerging MedTech entities that have had little or no exposure to investor network. The afternoon upskilling session will feature a series of speakers, followed by panel discussion. 

Access to appropriate research and development, navigation of commercialisation pathways, attracting investors, prioritizing opportunities and the rapid pace of technology shifts are all major challenges for emerging Healthtech Companies. In this 2018 workshop, an expert panel has been assembled to help upskill businesses in the various stages of commercial translation. The panel members will share their insights and personal experiences to help our new companies build a toolkit to scale and accelerate business growth and success. The topics covered are

Health Translation - taking technology into the clinical arena.
Commercial Translation - converting technology into a successful commercial product
Legal considerations - designing a company to launch offshore
Investment - what attracts investors to an emerging Healthtech company
Global Networks – international networks to launch product into Germany and Europe.
