7th March, 2017

Join us for an exciting startup showcase and discussion of women in technology on Wednesday 8th March 2017. Featuring leading entrepreneurs and industry professionals, this free event will highlight some of the most interesting and innovative health tech being developed in London.

Women have been instrumental to the creation and success of the technology industry, from Ada Lovelace, to Grace Hopper, to Margaret Hamilton, and the representation of women is growing. There is still much to be done, but female entrepreneurs and technologists are making great strides.

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2017, DigitalHealth.London Accelerator and London South Bank University (LSBU) are bringing together some of the most interesting female entrepreneurs in health technology for a morning of pitches, panel discussions, and networking. Open to all, this free event will also highlight some interesting opportunities for those involved in the health tech industry, with presentations from incubators, Accelerators, co-working spaces, and testing facilities. Sign up today.
