Johnson and Johnson Innovation call for digital health start-ups to join new programme
European scheme offers 20 businesses the chance to win a share of €50,000
Johnson and Johnson Innovation has launched a new mentoring programme, the Digital Health Masterclass, with places available for 20 digital health start-ups across Europe.
Created in partnership with Janssen Healthcare Innovation and led by wellness experts, the scheme is looking for disruptive companies with solutions for the healthcare sector.
Kicking off with the first of three workshops on September 18, the programme claims to provide a springboard for online health businesses to grow, with a second workshop in Barcelona and the culmination of the programme in London.
Successful applicants will receive mentoring and advice through targeted seminars led by a group of ‘international influencers' and will have access to networking opportunities with potential business partners.
The 20 chosen start-ups will also be invited to pitch their business models to a panel of investors at the final London event and the three most convincing entrepreneurs will receive prizes of £30,000, £15,000 and £5,000 to accelerate growth.
The scheme follows industry giants Johnson and Johnson's campaign for innovation which aims to advance healthcare on an international scale by collaborating with experts and entrepreneurs in science and technology.
Applications for the Masterclass close on August 9, to apply click here.
