Propel @ YH Boot Camp
Propel @ YH Boot Camp
Our Boot Camp for innovators outside the UK builds on the success of Propel @ YH and has been developed with international HealthTech SMEs in mind . The five-day programme of intensive support and masterclass content , provided by our expert partners , gives innovators a crash course on the UK healthcare market , access to subject matter experts and the opportunity to engage directly with local NHS stakeholders as well as the wider HealthTech ecosystem in the Yorkshire and Humber region . Leeds is a perfect fit to host international companies wanting to enter the UK market with 109,000 businesses generating over £ 69b , the Leeds City Region is the largest contributor to the UK economy in the North and the largest regional economy outside London . Over 600 businesses in the region supply products and services to the health and care sector and 22 % of the UK ’ s digital health jobs are based in the region .
Following the inaugural US Boot Camp in 2022 , we were delighted to see the impact of this as three companies established their UK bases in our region . This provided further impetus for us to secure three additional Boot Camps .
In January 2023 , eight innovators from the Nordic countries were selected to bring health innovations to the Yorkshire and Humber region in the second international Propel @ YH Boot Camp .
The Nordic cohort included :
• Cuviva : a scalable platform that connects the individual with health care professionals and relatives , providing personalized health services , real-time communication , and shared patient data
• Dignacare ( Senscom ): a userfriendly solution that combines sensors , big data and AI to notify when a resident needs change of incontinence products
• Leviosa : developing the next generation of electronic health record systems for healthcare providers
