Detailed Programme

The boot camp consists of two stages and takes place in two locations – London and Ghent. 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: Ghent
The second week of the boot camp takes place in Ghent 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. What does the hospital of the future look like?

    Our healthcare is constantly evolving so as to meet the changing demands of patients. What does the hospital of the future look like? What is the future role of hospitals in the healthcare system? And how can all stakeholders prepare for it? The Flemish government entrusted researchers at the Leuven Institute for Healthcare Policy (LIGB) of KU Leuven and Vlerick Business School with finding an answer to these questions. The findings of their study were published in a green paper that serves as support for future policy decisions.
  2. Medicines: how much should they cost?

    Although medical progress is allowing us to treat more and more diseases, innovative medicines tend to be expensive. Expenses are rising constantly in the healthcare sector as a result, putting accessibility and affordability under pressure. Which criteria does the Belgian Commission for Reimbursement of Medicines apply and what could be improved? These questions are answered in a study based on RIZIV data, in the framework of the Roche Chair at the Vlerick Healthcare Management Centre.
