Start-ups join Serendip Digital Health quarter

Four digital health start-up businesses are looking to accelerate their growth after joining the Serendip® Digital Health quarter in Birmingham.

Part of Innovation Birmingham’s Serendip® Smart City Incubator programme, there are four sector-specific Serendip® ‘quarters’, with the Digital Health quarter delivered by Innovation Birmingham in collaboration with the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN).

Within these challenge-led incubators, commercial partners help to mentor qualifying early stage tech companies who may, in turn, become customers or distribution channels for the start-ups.

The companies will now benefit from free high-tech office space for six months, mentoring from experienced entrepreneurs, specific start-up and innovation focused workshops, access to 6m+ wide presentation wall and access to more than 140 evening and networking events per year, based at Innovation Birmingham’s iCentrum building.

Tony Davis, commercial director of WMAHSN, said: “We are delighted to welcome our four new tenants to the state-of-the-art Serendip® Smart City IncubatorDigital Health quarter.

“Our start-up tenants offer solutions which respond to one or more of the our digital health challenges, and they will now be supported by WMAHSN and Innovation Birmingham’s mentorship programmes, enabling them to work directly with commercial partners to market-test and refine products and services.”
