Based at the Innovation Birmingham Campus, the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN) has launched its latest promotional video, highlighting the positive impact of the Serendip Smart City Incubator, business support programme with which the WMAHSN is partnered.
The video, entitled "Serendip® Digital Health Quarter - unleashing the power of healthcare innovation", features three start-ups supported by Serendip - Stan from Give Vision, Julie from Move it or Lose it! and Mahnaz from Medstars - talking about how their residency, as well as the support of WMAHSN, has helped them develop their business, unlock investment and accelerate the adoption of their innovations at scale and pace in the NHS market, ultimately benefiting patients.
Neil Mortimer, Business Manager at WMAHSN, explains how being situated in the Digital Health Quarter at the Innovation Birmingham Campus improves both patient care and the local economy, while Hugo Russell, Manager of the Serendip Smart City Incubator, outlines the key benefits of being part of the programme.
The Digital Health Quarter is based at Innovation Birmingham's multi-million-pound iCentrum building and seeks out proven digital innovations with the potential to save lives, improve health and create wealth.
Digital start-up businesses on the programme are provided with market access and expertise, and are supported to develop products, tools and services. WMAHSN has been designed in response to genuine needs of the healthcare sector, enabling the digital health start-ups to maximise their chance of success.
As well as free high-tech office space for six months, the companies gain access to a database of market influencers, clients and collaborators, as well as admission to over 140 specific start-up and innovation-focused events.
