The Hill Experts in Residence Digital Health Event

The Hill Expert-in-Residence Programme 2017

Digital health experts will be in Oxford on Thursday 27 July and you have the final opportunity to get world-leading expertise and advice about digital health ideas you may have, or digital health projects you’re currently working on.

In order to make the most of what is a limited amount of time during the one-on-one sessions, it’s important to be as clear as possible with your idea and vision. One great way of doing this is to use the Business Model Canvas, which is a free tool to help you visualise and clarify all the main components of a start-up. The University of Oxford’s Entrepreneurship Centre have a short blog post on this topic which includes a link to download a copy of the canvas and we recommend you read it for a short introduction –

The following experts will be within 5 minute walk of the John Radcliffe Hospital or one-to-one sessions from 14:00 to 17:00:
