Pitching at Baker Botts on 5th February

We still need more pitchers to give us ten good presenters for this event. Although there is no commitment to fund the two winners, with a dozen financiers on the panel there’s a jolly good chance that those that come over well will get offers. At the worst you’ll get great experience, and a lovely big bottle of high quality bubbly if you win! What’s not to like? Please apply soon!

More details here.

DHACA Day on 18th March

The agenda is solidifying – with Neil Foster of Baker Botts now confirming a presentation on data privacy regulation and how he thinks things will change with Brexit. Dr Keith Grimes should be joining us too to talk about Babylon and VR, so do check out the revised agenda and book soon!

Free help for small digital health organisations

DHACA has now received significant funding from Kent Surrey and Sussex AHSN, in exchange for which we are now offering help and guidance to start-ups and small SMEs entirely free. Following the call in the newsletter before Christmas, we have started to see a trickle of enquiries so please get in touch with Charles (charles.lowe@dhaca.org.uk) soon as current funding is set to expire on 31st March 2020.

And briefly:

  • The Design Museum has a lecture on Wearable Technology on Saturday 14 March 2020, 10.00 – 16.30 where you can”Learn the basics of Arduino coding and electronic textiles in this hands-on workshop.”
  • DIT is offering four really useful webinars shortly – the first, on 15th January is entitled “Crossing the Atlantic: All about ecommerce in the USA with Amazon.com” Book here. For all DIT webinars, click here.
  • Someone asked me recently where the money is in digital health – here’s one clue. (KRY of course is Livi in the UK.)
  • As most will be aware CES is on this week – keep up-to-date with presentations and other information here.
  • The watch is smart but it cannot replace your doctor.
  • Recent digital health startups.
  • There are some truly great videos here from a meeting chaired by Lord Willetts on 4th December. Well worth a watch.

Thanks as always to Prof Michael Short and Dr Nicholas Robinson for helpful inclusions in this newsletter.

I hope to see many of you on 5th February and 18th March!

Kind regards,
