Healthtech SMEs head to Boston for 'Future Health Mission'

20 Sep 2012

A group of the UK’s top health technology companies with high growth potential has succeeded in earning a place on the Future Health Mission to Boston.

Announced at the Royal College of Physicians by Technology Strategy Board Chief Executive Iain Gray and Minister for Trade and Investment Lord Green, 20 companies were selected out of more than 100 applications, spanning stratified and regenerative medicine, diagnostic and assisted living technologies.

The Future Health Mission is made possible by a key partnership between the Technology Strategy Board and UK Trade and Investment (UKTI), and is organised by The Long Run Venture and the Co-Sponsorship Agency. Its objective is to secure partnerships and overseas investment opportunities for the diverse array of selected transformative medical products.

The companies are now in Boston taking part in a packed week-long agenda of customer, investor and supply chain partner meeting and networking opportunities, as they explore how the US can help them accelerate their business growth objectives.
