The next big thing in Healthcare is Hardware

New technologies are enabling consumers to be increasingly proactive in managing their own health, with hardware playing a leading enabling role. As a result, companies developing hardware for health need to evolve quickly to keep up with increasing market/consumer demands. As a hardware startup, where do you go to access expertise in product design, engineering, manufacturing and execution? Join PCH and Johnson & Johnson Innovation for an insightful session featuring Casper de Clercq, Daniel Kraft and Yves Béhar, three powerhouses in hardware for health innovation, to learn about the market potential for hardware and how to capitalize on today’s opportunities to develop smart hardware for life enhancing and potentially life saving solutions.

Who should attend

  • Entrepreneurs from transformative health hardware companies either in the prototype or later development stage
  • Startups that would benefit from expertise in product design, manufacturing, scaling, distribution, regulatory or capital support
