Through its International Tech Hub Network, the UK Government is inviting applications from health-tech start-ups from India, Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria to participate in TeXchange 2020: Healthcare Innovation. The most innovative start-ups will be selected to come to the UK and participate in TeXchange, February 2020.

The Applications are now open and will close on 11 October, 2019.

This will be an early initiative of the UK-India Tech Hub, which aims to develop UK-India tech collaborations, create skilled digital tech jobs and stimulate the digital economy of both the UK and India. The Hub was announced last year as part of the wider UK-India Tech Partnership.

TeXchange is an immersive three-day programme that offers participants direct access to the UK’s top corporate and government agencies through public events, meet-ups and presentations. TeXchange 2020: Healthcare Innovation will focus on AI and big data in healthcare, early detection of diseases, population health, telemedicine, and diagnostics.

Key stakeholders involved will include healthcare start-ups, British healthcare companies, and leading UK service providers and intermediaries.

Digital Minister Matt Warman said:

“We are giving the brightest global entrepreneurs focused on the development of innovative healthtech solutions the unique opportunity to come to the UK and showcase their solutions to the UK’s healthcare sector. Texchange will help to build connections for global innovative startups and demonstrate that the UK is the place to grow and scale your tech business.”

As part of the UK-India Tech Partnership, the UK Government has delivered a number of initiatives over the last few years to support the buoyant Indian tech sector including the FinTech Rocketship Awards where FinTech entrepreneurs from UK and India were given an opportunity to experience their respective tech ecosystems and pitch for investments to grow their new businesses in this first-of-its-kind mentoring programme.
