Event Details

Join the Leicester Life Sciences Accelerator programme and the Innovation Hub Team at Innovation Friday to explore disruptive thinking building better resilience & wellbeing products.

The global COVID pandemic has triggered a shift in public perception and put wellbeing and resilience at the forefront of the national narrative as a clear unmet need. With the breadth of the topic of wellbeing and resilience being so large, it has often been perceived as a ‘nice to have’ rather than ‘must have.’

There is a clear market opportunity for the application of disruptive thinking routes to market and commercialise innovative wellbeing and resilience products to market both in a clinic and community setting for better outcomes for end-users.

Join the Leicester Life Science Accelerator in this Innovation Friday to explore ‘Disruptive thinking to build better wellbeing and resilience products.’

They will be having presentations around disruptive thinking from both Leicester academics and SMEs who are developing wellbeing and resilience products:

• Professor John Maltby explains how disruptive thinking can be applied to wellbeing and resilience products to help companies accelerate product development

• Showcase talk from Kartheka Bojan, the CEO of BrainBerry and recipient of the Leicestershire Innovation Award Digital Innovation of the Year Award 2021, on how the Cosma App is improving the quality of life for dementia patients

• Hear from Andy Yeoman (Focus Games), Linda Neville (Sana Mente) and Peter Evans (Third Space) to explore how the LLSA is de-risking their innovative wellbeing and resilience product development

• Explore how the LLSA can accelerate your development journey by identifying a clear route to market and signposting to funding opportunities.
