Connecting capabilities to drive forward medtech innovation
Nearing the end of the three-year experiment, MTSC is now collating the learnings and impact on the partner institutions and venture development from participating in this experiment. In this piece, we look at how Buckinghamshire New University has grown its entrepreneurship offering over three years, launching and developing the Digital and Health Tech Hubs and Bucks HSC Ventures in conjunction with its role in the MedTech SuperConnector. Bringing in over £200,000+ in funding to the institution through the support of three projects over two Challenge-led Accelerator Programmes there has been great success. The supported ventures include digital solutions for mental health & wellbeing and a new design for caps which reduced joint pain for those with arthritis, solved pressing health problems.

This case study is the first in a series to be released during the autumn of 2020 and spring 2021.
