Our support was delivered via a five month cohort structure.
Participants were given a bespoke pathway that offered regular one-to-one meetings with expert consultants, personal development opportunities, and support with product development.
We helped participants to:
Develop, test and improve their product or service
Build a sustainable business model
Workshops were delivered by a range of experts throughout the programme. They were designed to provide participants with a thorough, rounded knowledge-base upon which they could continue to develop themselves and their business.
Example events included:
Writing a Successful Grant Application
Evidence Generation for Digital Health SMEs
Navigating Procurement and Frameworks
A good leader is as valuable to a business as a good product or idea. Throughout programme, particpants had regular face-to-face meetings with experts who provided feedback and the benefit of their experience.
Support & Guidance - Throughout the programme businesses met with the SimDH team to discuss their progress.
Peer Network – Members were able to join the cohort Slack Channel, providing them the opportunity to connect with each other and seek out collaboration and feedback where appropriate.
Businesses with a design prototype who required support to develop a MVP, or already had a MVP and were ready to start independent testing, were encouraged to apply for Academic Collaboration as part of the programme.
Refine an existing idea or product
Participants were then able to move forward, access funding, or enter the marketplace with the confidence as their idea had been ratified by a leading academic body.
