...to 'grill' the 2 brave companies to be on stage.

We need two brave companies

Pointing the spotlight on two brave companies, the Clinic will put them through the piercing judgement of a healthcare industry expert panel, who will assess and evaluate their efforts towards product commercialisation, diagnosing strengths and weaknesses, and prescribing recommendations to support successful outcomes.

We're hoping two new brave companies will step forth again, and face our "Brutally Honest Panelists".

Looking for volunteer companies to step up!

The opportunity for med/health tech companies to support the transformation of healthcare continues to grow, with the health tech startup sector playing an important role in supporting the ongoing evolution of healthcare. This event aims to provide practical insights to support aspiring health tech start-ups, as well as those seeking to commercialise new products, in maximising their impacts.

The Health Tech Speed Clinic will take a quick, direct, yet penetrating look at healthcare and medtech companies in their steps towards product commercialisation and market entry.

Then, remember the two companies that had gone through the Speed Clinic last year? Yes, we're going to bring one of them back (NephTech), and share their progress, one year on.


Here’s the program.

6.00pm – Prep/Reception/Registrations and networking

6.30pm – Introduction and briefing from panels about what to look out for (a few minutes per panellist)

7.00pm – Company 1 pitch

7.15pm – Grilling by panellists

7.30pm – Company 2 pitch

7.45pm – Grilling by panellists

8.15pm - previous company sharing their progress 1 year on

8.30pm – Open discussion

9.00pm – End

The panellists are free to provide guidance to the two companies thereafter, and for that matter, anyone from our group that gets in touch with them.


And as usual, you’d get to meet people that have the same interests, needs and wants as you do, so it’ll be a lot of fun!

We can’t do self-introductions as per our group practices, but we hope like-minded folks can gather, pool resources or even seek help collectively to further the sharing economy.

Although this event is held in Singapore, we'll look to have video conferencing for such meetups - happen to have a friend that learnt how to do this in his meetup events.

Not your usual speaker or panel discussion kind of event. Something different, hopefully fun and useful!
