SPARK Europe Webinar Series 2021: Design Thinking for Health Innovation

Interested in Learning How Design Based-Approaches Can Help You Reach Patients Faster?

Radical innovation approaches have been slowly making their way out of the creative disciplines and into boardrooms around the world over the past decade. The approach has been slow to take, but it is becoming clearer that the same strategies used by successful startups and blue-chip companies to innovate quickly and cost-effectively can be put to use within the healthcare sector.

In the SPARK EUROPE WEBINAR “Design Thinking for Health Innovation”, Jeremias Schmitt, innovation professional and Head of Transformation and Strategy at Fuenfwerken Design, will share his experience implementing innovation strategy in health contexts to create radically better solutions for patients as part of the Inventors for Health Program of the Stiftung Charité and SPARK- BIH.

SPARK Europe Webinar Series 2021: Are you willing to pay for it?

Are you interested in learning how to find a product-market fit in health tech?

As a start-up, you’re launching something new to the market. You have a product. There is a market. In order to be poised for commercial success, you need to make those ends meet. Product-market fit is about ensuring that your product fulfills an unmet need on the market, there are people willing to use your product, it creates sufficient value, and at the end of the day, there is willingness to pay.

In this SPARK EUROPE WEBINAR, Marko Kuisma, commercial leader and executive with experience in international health tech, health care and life science sectors, will share his experiences with practical examples of what is important in finding a product-market fit – and what are the do’s and don’ts along the way.

The webinar is open to all SPARKees, SPARK mentors, and students and staff of SPARK associated organizations. Webinar is organized by SPARK Finland at Tampere Universities zoom.

MIXII BioMed 2021 (Tel Aviv, ISR)

Within the arena of health care, quality of life is viewed as multidimensional, encompassing emotional, physical, material, and social well-being. Human lifespan could soon pass 100 years thanks to medical science and technology. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, genomics and other technologies may lead to an extended life. In today’s modern society, there exists a “religious” fervor of prolonging life at a potential cost of reduced quality of life. In the upcoming MIXiii-BIOMED 2021 conference we will focus our attention to this very important issue of “Quality of our extended lives – Pros and Cons”. Our previous successful conferences hosted over 6,000 industry executives, scientists, doctors, engineers and investors, including approximately 1,000 international participants from over 45 countries and more than 4,500 one-on-one meetings.
