Are you interested in the innovations in the fields of healthcare and cleantech?
Do you want to know how disruptive technologies and processes are impacting human wellbeing?
Come along to the London regional final competition of the IMAGINE IF! Global Accelerator to hear from the most promising London Startups. Ten start-ups in the field of healthcare and five start-ups in the field of clean-tech will be competing for their place in the Global Final of IMAGINE IF! and their chance to kick-off their start-up journey.
These past months, our startups have strived for excellence by refining their ideas, business plans and practicing their pitches, with the precious help from our selected industry mentors. Each startup will have 3 minutes to pitch their ideas to our carefully selected judges along with 2 minutes for questions. For the TOP5 Cleantech, a non-dilutive prize of GBP 500 will be offered to the winner. For the winner of the TOP10 Healthcare, a direct access to the Global Final in the 2019 Leaders Conference will be offered where they will have a chance to win a non-dilutive prize of at least $10,000 and lab space.
