Looking to break into the digital health market, or need some space to develop e-solutions for patients? Biopôle’s Digital Health Hub could be just what you’re after. You can profit from an extensive network of industry experts and fast-track your project.
This immersive programme is a unique opportunity for early-stage start-ups to work with diverse and experienced digital health experts, who can advise on business plans and strategies. They include clinicians, nurses and pharmacists, alongside regulators, investors and IT specialists, all ready to offer their expertise.
The serviced, ready-to-move-into private laboratory allows companies to focus their investment on innovation rather than fitting out space, while the extended service and concierge offering will allow young entrepreneurs to save a significant amount of time and thus focus on their innovation.
