DFIB: Healthcare and Supply Chain Innovation Bootcamp

Join us and Business Durham at our Innovation Bootcamp on Thursday 17th November to learn about the funding and support available for innovation projects through Durham Future Innovation Building (DFIB) programme, and develop your plan to introduce a new solution to your business or the marketplace

This session will help businesses to create plans to develop and test innovative solutions in a lean, low-commitment way to confirm you have identified a good fit between the available market and the proposed solution before spending too much time and effort on undertaking the project. It will address the complexity of undertaking user testing when a product not working can pose a high risk to end users, and how health businesses can ensure they are validating the business model and desirability of their solutions as well as its technical development.

Participants will come away with a greater understanding of how to rapidly test and validate innovative solutions with clients and end users.
