Whether you are a clinical entrepreneur, start-up/early-stage innovator or a more established business, you’re all in the health tech and social care sector to develop solutions to help meet current and future health and care challenges. As a business, creating new jobs, generating economic growth, reducing health inequalities and meeting your Net Zero targets are now all part of your strategic and business planning processes. Alongside this, you are seeking to understand the value of your solutions to your target market and to prove that value through evaluation.

At Kent Surrey Sussex AHSN (soon to be Health Innovation Kent Surrey Sussex) we are here to provide you with the relevant signposting and business support to help you to navigate this complex ecosystem.

For this reason, the KSS AHSN team is continuing with their series of online bite-sized workshops, delivered in-house or by industry experts, to support your business in meeting these challenges. The series includes sessions on developing a value proposition, intellectual property and how to win public grants for commercial growth needs.

These sessions are designed as part of the AHSN Network universal and enhanced services offer and you can attend as many for free that you wish:
