Detailed Programme

The boot camp consists of two stages and takes place in two locations – London and Brussels. Throughout the boot camp, you’ll explore frameworks and concepts and apply them to your idea.  As you build your business plan, world-class industry experts and academics will challenge it – helping you turn it into a robust, commercial offer.

The boot camp includes three content blocks:

  • Value Creation in Health Markets
  • Value Capture
  • Value Delivery

After each block, you’ll have the opportunity to refine your idea with the help of coaches and experts. You’ll also present your idea to your fellow participants and get valuable feedback.

Week one: London
In this first week you’ll focus on problem solving. You’ll assess the full potential impact of your technology or idea and how it creates better and healthier lives. And you’ll work on your pitching skills by testing yourself in the Imperial College Impact LabTM.

Week two: Brussels
The second week of the boot camp takes place in Brussels with a.o. a visit to Health HouseTM. You’ll focus on designing your business plan and learning how to secure the best sources of funding for your venture.

At the end of the boot camp, you’ll pitch your final idea in front of a Dragon’s Den style jury of venture capitalists, business school professors and health sector experts. Depending on your performance, you might be awarded the direct wild card that entitles you to have your case evaluated by the Caring Entrepreneurship Fund’s investment committee.

Vlerick expertise in Healthcare Management

  1. Flexible working in hospitals: how to make it a success

    Flexible working is all the rage these days, and hospitals can't escape the trend either. The white paper ‘Flexible working in hospitals: OM and HRM perspective’ by our MINOZ research centre is the fruit of last year's efforts. It examines what flexible working means for the organisation and the employee, how the two perspectives can be brought into balance and which forms of flexible working are relevant for hospitals. Illustrated with practical examples, it offers food for thought for organisations which would like to introduce flexible working themselves.
  2. Setting Priorities in Healthcare

    Healthcare organisations are under growing pressure to give patients better outcomes and add value for all stakeholders. And in recent years, there has been an increase in innovation across the sector – with the arrival of emerging technologies and pharmaceutical advances that have the potential to enhance the lives of patients around the world.
