Leading innovators and entrepreneurs will be gathering at the Royal Society of Medicine to take part in the Society’s 20th Medical Innovations Summit.
The Summit provides a biannual platform for the presentation and discussion of inspirational ideas and developments in the field of medicine and healthcare, bringing together clinicians, entrepreneurs, policy-makers and VCs.
For the landmark 20th Medical Innovations Summit, the RSM will host a 4-hour morning conference bringing together the best elements of previous Summits, with presentations from top medical innovators and researchers, as well as a networking ‘Pitch Cafe’ featuring early-stage entrepreneurs from two of the UK’s leading accelerator programmes.
During the first two sessions, there will be talks and discussions from our key speakers. These sessions are designed to showcase some of the world’s top medical ideas and offer the opportunity to hear from leading thinkers in the field to demonstrate and debate the current, and future, state of medical innovation.
During the networking breaks, we are running a ‘Pitch Cafe’ in The Atrium of the RSM. Six entrepreneurs from two accelerator programmes, the InnovationRCA and the MedTech SuperConnector, will be stationed on tables, informally presenting their medical ventures and chatting with delegates.
- The MedTech SuperConnector is an Imperial College London-led initiative that was set up and designed to facilitate the early-stage development of innovative medical technologies, from devices, diagnostics, and digital healthcare solutions. The initiative provides participants with the funding, training, mentorship and access to industry partners to help fast-track the translation of their research discoveries.
- InnovationRCA is the Royal College of Art’s centre for enterprise, entrepreneurship, incubation and business support. It provides start-up incubation services to help exceptional graduate start-ups with compelling ideas rapidly generate technological, market or commercial proof of concept and transform into profitable and investable businesses.
The Pitch Cafe is a part of an on-going collaboration with these accelerators to connect entrepreneurs with the clinical expertise available across the RSM’s network.
By bringing together both established Medtech companies and researchers with exciting early-stage entrepreneurs, the RSM’s Medical Innovations Summit aims to give delegates the chance to hear from, and engage with, the people who are driving medical innovation forward.
