Silver Buck will be sponsoring the Rewired Pitchfest, due to be run as part of the Digital Health Rewired Conference and Exhibition on 26th March at the London Olympia.
The Rewired Pitchfest provides an opportunity for the best early-stage digital health start-ups and innovators to showcase their ideas in front of a distinguished audience of NHS IT leaders and compete to be named the Rewired PitchFest winner by a panel of judges, made up of leading healthtech investors and well-renowned founders of successful start-ups.
Rewired Pitchfest represents a unique chance for some of the brightest minds in digital health to gain invaluable exposure, possible investment and the mentorship needed to break through the ceiling and accelerate their development.
Stephen Bryant, Director and Co-Founder of Silver Buck, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for start-ups to make a real and lasting impact on the digital health landscape, and we are extremely proud and excited to sponsor an event in line with our ethos of bringing new ideas, concepts and solutions to the digital health market.
“We’ve already collaborated with numerous innovative start-ups in digital health to help bring them to market, and we can’t wait to find out what new, cutting-edge ideas are on the horizon.”
The Rewired Pitchfest is looking for entrants that are start-ups or registered businesses established for less than three years – with health and social care services, medical devices, consumer health and wellbeing or life sciences as their primary focus of activity.
Jon Hoeskma, CEO of Digital Health, said: “Rewired is about bringing together the best of current health IT with emerging digital health innovators. The Rewired Pitchfest provides an opportunity for all start-ups and innovative young digital health companies to showcase their innovations to current digital leaders.”
