Tim Perera, Octimet

“As an experienced research scientist I was well aware that I was ill equipped to set up and form a company. The boot camp gave us the fundamentals of formulating a business plan. It also helped us to develop a focused investor pitch. The individual, direct feedback from professors and coaches was invaluable. In addition, it was very useful to learn from the evolving ideas of the other teams – and to critique each other’s presentations in a friendly, supportive environment. What we learned during the boot camp has given us a solid foundation to build our company into the success it is today. The opportunity to pitch to investors was particularly useful – and we made contacts that eventually led to us raising the funding we needed.”


Fareed Iqbal, Surgease Innovations Ltd

“Simply one of the best courses I have attended. I highly recommend this course to any clinician venturing into healthcare entrepreneurship.”


Bart Geers, Antelope Diagnostics

“There are very few high-quality training opportunities for start-ups in the healthcare sector. The level of the bootcamp is truly exceptional”. Read the full testimonial here.
