Accelerator and Launchpad companies featured in Department of Trade Beyond 100 Playbook

This month, the Department of Trade (DIT) launched the Beyond100 Playbook – a collection of some of the UK’s most impressive digital health innovators that support healthcare in a variety of ways. The UK companies were selected after a rigorous process and were judged on a range of criteria, such as uniqueness and how well they represent the UK journey and direction in digital health. A number of alumnus companies from the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator and Launchpad programmes were featured in the playbook under each category:
