STEP INto Healthcare

Greater Manchester Academic Health Science Network (GM AHSN), in conjunction with the Business Growth Hub, will be launching its STEP INto Healthcare development programme in early 2017. The first round of STEP INto Healthcare will be aimed at small businesses in Greater Manchester who expect to see growth in the healthcare market in 2017.

The programme aims to prepare innovators to successfully grow their market within the NHS and other healthcare providers by creating effective collaborations and partnerships. This will be done via a series of intensive learning days, engaging workshops and tailored 1 to 1 support.

The course will conclude with a proposition to appropriate Greater Manchester healthcare procurers, commissioners and/or investment specialists. This is a great opportunity to get your product in front of key decision makers, establish useful relationships and receive constructive feedback.


The content and structure of the programme is still in development and GM AHSN would like your input into the main topics and structure. Provide feedback and register your interest here.

The STEP INto Healthcare programme is fully funded by GM AHSN and the Business Growth Hub, supported by the European Regional Development Fund. Companies pay nothing for this service but must agree to commit to attending sessions if accepted onto the programme.
