Velocity Health is an accelerator programme spear-headed by global healthcare firm Merck Sharp & Dohme (MSD) and Wayra UK, the accelerator platform owned by Telefónica.
Set up in 2015, it targets start-ups working to meet the challenges facing the NHS.
This year, MSD and Wayra UK are seeking firms using machine learning and AI to support disease and illness prevention.
Two companies will be offered a maximum of £68,000 each in funding and “acceleration services”.
They will meet with mentors, coaches and investors, who will offer entrepreneurial support throughout the 10-month programme. They will also have access to Warya UK’s office space in central London.The deadline for applications is 4 January, 2018, with the finalists being announced on 12 January.
The NHS has made digital excellence the cornerstone of its future model and all must embrace this to have a healthcare system fit for the 21st Century.
