On Jan. 27, the Navigate Entrepreneurship Centre and Bounce Health Innovation will deliver a digital event focused on identifying opportunities for innovation and entrepreneurship in health in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Covid-19 has precipitated a new era of healthcare, moving innovation forward at unprecedented speed with 10-year advances in technology happening in mere months. This agility to break down the barriers of health innovation through multidisciplinary collaboration is creating new and unexpected opportunities for entrepreneurs in a field once reserved for medical experts.
The Healthy Futures Forum aims to bring together health sector professionals, innovators and entrepreneurs to explore the problems and novel solutions that will shape the future of health in our province. This online, half-day event is open to anyone with an entrepreneurial mindset and an interest in health innovation.
Participants in the event will:
- Hear about the successes and innovations of pioneers who are making waves in the health and wellness sector in Western NL
- Network, brainstorm and delve into the potential for health innovation in NL with local health experts and panelists
- Engage in meaningful discussions, generate ideas and contribute insights to help accelerate the growth of health innovation in our province
- Learn about the many resources and supports that are available to early stage entrepreneurs and innovators who want to start or grow a business in the health sector
