Success stories

Arden Tomison CEO, Thalamos, DigitalHealth.London Launchpad 2019/20
Being part of the DigitalHealth.London Launchpad programme has helped us enormously and the education, contacts and growth opportunities the programme has provided us with have been pivotal to us reaching this stage.
Matthew Steans Founder, Stigma Statistics, DigitalHealth.London Launchpad 2019/20
Thank you DigitalHealth.London for making our launch possible! We highly recommend the Launchpad programme. It really gave us the support and guidance we needed at a crucial time in our business development.
James Jurkiewicz Co-founder, Islacare, DigitalHealth.London Launchpad 2019/20
We were lucky enough to join the December 2019 induction of the launchpad, and have benefitted from a number of in depth discussions with leads from across the NHS, from IG to Digital, which was all super helpful in guiding us towards our launch. Since then, we’ve been in keeping in touch with others in our cohort to ask & answer questions as we all move forwards together.
