Innovate Healthcare

Startup Weekend Health London is the first Startup Weekend dedicated exclusively to Health in the UK.  We are all patients and friends and family of patients and we all have ideas on how to improve the healthcare system in the UK. We want you to bring your ideas for helping patients, caregivers and the NHS provide better, more efficient care. Even if you don't have an idea, come work with others who do to build what could be the next great solution for the NHS. 

Lets build the future of Healthcare !
  • Do you seek knowledge and other like-minded people interested in the Healthcare system?
  • Are a medical professional with a new idea who wants to develop it and help its patients? 
  • Are you a business professional interested in the new Medtech revolution? 
  • Are a developer or a UX specialist who wants to make a difference?   
  • Do you want to get hands on and learn by doing about business design, marketing research and developing a prototype?
  • Do you want to get mentoring from insiders, clinical specialists, technological geniuses and business gurus?
  • Do you want to start building your future and help change the world in just 54 hours?
Do you have an idea you'd like to pursue or a problem you'd like to solve but don't know where to start or who to start with?

Techstars Startup Weekend is the place to look for a team, create a prototype of your idea, validate your business idea, and receive feedback from experienced entrepreneurs, all in one weekend.

What do you need to bring?

Lots of energy! You'll pitch your own idea or listen to others, then vote on the most interesting ideas and form teams with diverse skill sets. You can come with friends, but you’ll get the full experience if you participate in separate teams. Remember, it’s all about the team.

Your idea should be something you have not previously worked on. The idea you pitch and the problem you set out to solve can span social, educational, financial, environmental, or other issues. Over the course of the weekend you'll be challenged to create a prototype of your MVP, or minimum viable product, that fits the needs of your target customer. You'll get feedback, iterate, and likely pivot your approach entirely! Important: You cannot have worked previously on your idea.

Techstars Startup Weekend is a full weekend long experience. Your ticket includes:
  • 7 full (and delicious) meals over the course of the weekend
  • Benefits and discounts from our global partners
  • One-on-one time with amazing mentors
  • A new network of developers, designers, and entrepreneurs eager, like you, to change the world.
  • All the internet and coffee you can consume.
