UK MedEnterprise Training Network

UK MedEnterprise Training Network
Event on 2016-03-10 12:00:00
The UK has all of the ingredients for a robust and world-leading medical technology development hub, but relatively few large-scale successes so far. Such success requires a startup ecosystem that includes IP experts, regulatory resources, knowledge of reimbursement protocols, and an entrepreneurial culture, as well as a wide spectrum of investors. Universities can marry this ecosystem to technological breakthroughs, and thereby train and launch the next generation of medtech entrepreneurs. Imperial College is hosting a workshop that aims to solidify and feed the medtech entrepreneurship ecosystem with networks will encompass everything from student training to full-scale medtech businesses. The workshop will feature panel discussions, interactive sessions, and ample networking opportunities. One goal will be to provide exposure for the various university training programmes, and seek input from other constituents on programme content. There will also be featured elevator pitches from the emerging entrepreneurs that are an important output of these programmes. The workshop will take place at Imperial College’s South Kensington campus on 10-11 March 2016.  Thanks to generous support from EPSRC, there is no fee to attend, but registration is required.  The workshop will begin at mid-day on the 10th and adjourn at mid-day on the 11th, facilitating travel from the entire UK. A reception and gala dinner will be held the evening of the 10th.  Accommodation details can be found at http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/campusservices/accommodation/visitorsaccommodation/hotelaccommodation   Draft Workshop Schedule (subject to change) Thursday, 10 March 2016 Noon – 1:30:  Networking lunch 1:30 – 2:00: Introduction and goals of workshop          Prof. James Moore – Imperial College    2:00 – 3:00:  Keynote Lecture                                    Dr. John Gonzalez-Carvajal –  Endomagnetics 3:00 – 4:00:  Trio of startup stories                            Daniel Green, Yaqrit                                                                                Sorin Popa, Stent Tek                                                                                Jemma Redmond, Ourobotics 4:00 – 4:30:  Coffee/tea break 4:30 – 5:30:  BioDesign-inspired programmes             Maarten De Vos, Oxford University – Lucille Valentine, Newcastle University 5:30 – 6:00:  Reception 6:00 – 7:00:  Elevator pitches offered by students and trainees 7:00 – 10:00:  Dinner Friday, 11 March 2016 8:30 – 9:30:  Degree programmes                                  Richard Black, Strathclyde University                                                                                   James Moore, Imperial College                                                                                   Neil Bressloff, Univ. of Southampton                                                                                   Marco Viceconti, Univ. of Sheffield 9:30 – 11:30: Startup approaches to the NHS                 Led by Phil Jackson, MedCity and                                                                                   David Parry, SEHTA 11:30 – 1:00:  Panel Discussion and wrapup               Panelists:                         Mario Accardi, Fort Rock Capital                         Michael Burdon, Olswang                         Nick Stephens, RSA                         Charles Brigden, BTG For more information, contact: Professor James E.
