Dear Digital Health Community, Innovators and the Spark Community,

Berlin Institute of Health (BIH), the partner of the Charité BIH Entrepreneurship Summit , supported by Spark Berlin, will host a breakout session on Tuesday, May 8, 9:30 am – 11:30 am

'From Vision to Patient: Innovation in the Real World'

During the workshop -or more specific the Think Tank- we would like to show that partnerships (industry, VCs, accelerators, politics, insurance companies) are necessary to drive innovation, as very rarely does an innovation come to life by someone who worked alone. Every day there are partnerships being formed, deals being done. It is the business of Innovation and every entrepreneur needs to know about it. This is your chance to hear all sides of the story. 

This Forum will look at the partnerships that are valuable in shaping creativity and creating innovation that leads to ideas reaching patients, what is to be gained and what can be lost and how the process is set to change for digital solutions. Will MedTech and Pharma dominate digital innovation or will we see a whole new paradigm for partnership emerge?

The panels will include representatives from leading MedTech, Pharma and Digital Industries, investors, scientists, entrepreneurs, and startups as well as insurance providers and policymakers, as everyone has a critical part in the business of innovation. Join us for a fun and open discussion on the business of innovation, for you, the entrepreneur.

(Please find more information on the panels below)

The workshop is free of charge, but registration is required.

So please everyone join us to learn more from our international and experienced panelists how good partnerships can foster innovation!
