Former participants say:

Hans Kristian Fra Prozense

"The different workshops have given us a great start. We arrived with knowledge from DTU and the workshops have provided us with new and exciting knowledge on product development within the healthcare sector."

"If it hadn’t been for Health Innovators – we wouldn’t be standing here today with an almost fully developed product."

Amalie Fra IRIS

“We have benefited a lot from counselling and networking. We have had an opportunity to get in touch with some people through Health Innovators, and it has made it much easier to land agreements. It has been worth it!”

Niels Kvorning

”The best thing about Health Innovators was the framework that established a specific and effective network within the Capital Region. During the relatively short course, our CHI mentor introduced us to the possibilities and challenges within the Capital region in a more clear and understandable way than we’ve been able to ourselves during the previous 8 months of hard work.”

Niels Kvorning
Nikolaj Fra Prozense

"We have had several meetings with our adviser who has introduced us to a lot of great people. It has been very nice because we’ve been offered ideas and new ways of thinking. Network means everything!"
