A note from the team of Johnson & Johnson Innovation arrived in our inbox this week announcing a new ‘compelling contribution to building a vibrant digital health ecosystem’ in Europe. Johnson & Johnson is launching a masterclass programme, offering cash prize of €50,000 and also, more importantly for many, access and mentoring from the Johnson & Johnson team and their extended team. The aim is to help grow the digital health startup community.
This looks awesome. I know first hand through my work as a mentor on a similar scheme for digital and mobile startups through Telefonica’s Wayra initiative, and also through my involvement through this blog, the events I get to attend and through the work I’m up to in the day job over at Battenhall towers with digital innovators. Nurturing from the big brands like Johnson & Johnson’s innovation team is exactly what the startup ecosystem needs.
To take part, you need to apply online. Here’s the link. Good luck, applications close on 9th August.
