Opportunity – STEP INto Healthcare and Masterclass Series

TRUSTECH, in partnership with the Business Growth Hub and Health Innovation Manchester, are delivering fully funded support to B2B SMEs in Greater Manchester who are introducing new and innovative products and services to the Life Science Sector.

The support available ranges from:

  • 1:1 business advice in specialist areas
  • opportunities to engage and network with industry and procurement specialists
  • access to NHS clinical opinions and specialist programmes such as the STEP INto Healthcare programme (www.intohealth.org/step). This programme runs over 4 sessions and covers the healthcare landscape, procurement, pitch training and the opportunity to pitch to NHS Trust and CCG Heads of Procurement in Greater Manchester.

In March 2018 a new Masterclass series will start focusing on 6 complementary key topics designed for Greater Manchester B2B SMEs developing and selling medical and digital products to satisfy NHS clinical needs.

These Masterclasses will provide strategic knowledge, targeted workshops and Q&A opportunities with industry expert speakers. Held on a Thursday afternoon from 12-4pm, companies can choose to attend all workshops in the series or choose those that are most relevant. These sessions are aimed at those with limited availability and specific needs.

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.
