Health Tech or Digital Health is rapidly gaining attention from the “startup ecosystem” of entrepreneurs, government initiatives, corporate incubators, developers, designers, angel investors, venture capitalists and journalists in London. 

Across London and the UK, hundreds of startups are working tirelessly to solve every day problems within the highly fragmented but lucrative healthcare industry. Innovation has the potential to generate massive rewards, the private healthcare market in the UK alone is worth an astonishing £25 Billion per annum, patients spend over £8 Billion a year on Dentistry in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and forecasts until 2017 show further growth.

Join us to celebrate and network with the leading HealthTech startups:

• Meet entrepreneurs, who are creating world-changing technology
