Access to the life science market can be a headache for multinational pharma and medical device companies, let alone small-medium sized enterprises (SMEs). SMEs can face significant challenges to introduce new and innovative products into the health and social care market.
The Innovation Nexus provides a single point of access for SMEs in the life science sector to a network of specialist support within Greater Manchester.
The Innovation Nexus is a gateway to a holistic business growth support offering, focused on the specialist needs of life science SMEs, delivered through a coherent support strategy and an all-inclusive approach to helping businesses develop their growth strategies.
The aim of the Innovation Nexus is to deliver long-term health and wealth benefits to Greater Manchester through investment, innovation, education and business growth, ultimately improving the health and wellbeing of the Greater Manchester population (and beyond).

The challenge for healthcare businesses
Companies, especially SMEs, can face significant challenges to introduce their new and innovative products into the NHS. The complexity of public procurement, patient safety and a risk averse culture across multiple organisations can be daunting. The Innovation Nexus aims to provide a single source of resource that can help companies, particularly SMEs, understand the steps that need to be taken to support their business planning and engage with the NHS more easily, thus progressing the adoption of their innovation at pace and with fewer unanticipated obstacles.
