Pitch Night: HealthTech and MedTech

The health technology industry is rapidly expanding throughout Australia and the world, especially due to the rising life expectancy and ageing global population. The medical tech sector has already seen major growth due to consumer accessibility; increasing prevalence of smartphones and tablets means providers are discovering how to reach larger audiences at lower costs.

Our focus on HealthTech in June will profile and showcase both leaders and up-and-coming startups that are revolutionising and empowering the HealthTech industry.

What is HealthTech?

HealthTech is the use of technology (databases, applications, mobiles, wearables) to improve the delivery, payment, and/or consumption of care, with the ability to increase the development and commercialisation of medicinal products.

The Pitch Night:

They will also be pitching to win the Startup Victoria Prize Package below.
