 With many HealthTech start-ups now stemming from university research, the diversity of the HealthTech sector also means they can   start from anywhere - from clinical practice, community action, personal experience, or passion projects. This panel session will dive into   the experiences of multiple start-ups and where they began to understand the differing aspects, challenges and advantages of the   routes they have taken. Hosted by Professor Simon Fraser, Victoria University of Wellington.
