Pitch for the chance to win NHS pilot site opportunity for your idea or start-up

The Rewired Pitchfest on 4 March 2020 provides an opportunity for early stage digital health start-ups to compete to be named the Rewired Pitchfest winner by our judges.

Run as part of the Digital Health Rewired Conference and Exhibition, the Pitchfest is a great opportunity to showcase your start-up or idea in front of the unique Rewired audience of NHS IT leaders. The judging panel will include investors and founders of successful digital health start-ups.

The winners of the 2020 Digital Health Rewired Pitchfest will be offered the opportunity to have their innovation tested and scaled in a real-world NHS setting.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and their charity, CW+ will offer winners a real-world test bed in whichever care setting their concept or start-up is based.

Who should enter?

You might just be at the idea stage or you may have a project you are just starting up and need support and funding want to take to the next stage, or you are raising further investment to grow to the next stage.

Pitching process

On the morning of the Pitchfest groups of start-ups will each deliver a three-minute pitches and then answer questions from the judges live on stage.

A winner from each group will be chosen to go through to the final at the end of the morning, where finalists will pitch again, and the judges will then name an overall Pitchfest winner.

Widespread exposure for winners

The Rewired Pitchfest winner 2020 will gain a lot of exposure to the diverse range of digital health leaders at Rewired. We’ll also arrange a mentoring session with the judges and feature the winning start-up on Digital Health News and partner publications.

Deadline for entries is Tuesday 28 January at 1pm. Unfortunately we will not be able to accept any late entry.

“It’s an incredible event and obtaining validation from leaders, influencers and innovators within the healthcare innovation field is always of value.”
