Life science businesses invited to STEP INto Healthcare

Life science companies based in the Greater Manchester (GM) area are invited to take part in Health Innovation Manchester’s successful business support programme during 2018.

STEP INto Healthcare is a structured programme of learning that is FREE to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and aims to help them to develop their business proposals and better understand the needs of the NHS.

The programme has been developed by TRUSTECH, the Business Growth Hub and Health Innovation Manachester to facilitate the growth of “ready to scale-up” businesses and deliver funded support to those companies that want to introduce innovative products and services to the NHS.

SMEs that attend will receive intensive support, delivered by leading NHS procurement and industry engagement experts.

The programme will provide:

  • Access to GM’s health innovation and procurement leaders
  • Opportunities to learn about and understand the healthcare landscape and routes to market
  • 1-to-1 and workshop style business development, learning and training
  • The chance to pitch your business to NHS procurement specialists

Apply now!

Support delivered to businesses through the Innovation Nexus and STEP INto Healthcare programme (including Masterclass) is part-funded by the European Union Regional Development Fund (ERDF), which means there is no direct cost to businesses.

This funding is made available to encourage businesses to start-up and grow across Greater Manchester and some of our support even extends beyond this. Unless explicitly stated, all support provided is full-funded.
