Pitch@Palace – it’s voting time + a great short video on wearables

Our previous item on Pitch@Palace introduced this brilliant pitching event for entrepreneurs. Now the pitches have been put on the web for everyone to vote for.

We highly recommend readers to have a look at the pitches and vote for your favourite for the “People’s Choice” award – there are lots of health-related start-ups to choose from…overall the pitches give a great feel for what is hot just now.

And whilst you’re in video mode, have a quick look at this very short, excellent summary of recently launched wearables that Prof Mike Short kindly made me aware of today – a “must watch”!

Two events of interest, especially to digital health entrepreneurs

Prof Mike Short has drawn my attention to two events taking place in October:

‘The cupboard is bare: how technology can address key unmet needs in mental health’ – Cambridge Wireless Healthcare SIG event – this half day Cambridge event om 13th October, hosted by Philips Research Laboratories and jointly sponsored by TTP and Plextek, will explore the needs from the perspective of the healthcare professional and patient. More details here; book here.

6th Discovering Start-Ups Competition – a brilliant opportunity to win some really valuable prizes to get your start-up really started up, pitching to an elite panel of business leaders from Deloitte, Google, BT, IBM, Cambridge Angels, London Business Angels, Qualcomm Ventures, Samsung and more. Finals will be held at Deloittes in London on 21st October. Note entries have to be submitted by 14th September at the latest.
