About the programme

As a participant in the MedTech SuperConnector, you will work with teammates to devise and commercially develop a new technology aimed at improving mental health, wellbeing and happiness: Think a diagnostic tool, robotic device, data-driven solution, or wherever your ingenuity takes you.

The programme is open to postdocs, PhD students and Master’s students in all departments.

With access to entrepreneurship training and generous financial support, your team will have a chance turn an idea into a successful venture in just six months.

You will get:

  • The opportunity to form a team with researchers and postgrads in other disciplines on an exciting venture which can use your business or science expertise to achieve important social benefits.
  • The chance to develop your entrepreneurial skills through masterclasses, specialist resources and practical experience developing a new technology startup.
  • Financial support of up to £60,000 per venture (equity free) and a £1,000 per month stipend for each participant.

No pre-existing idea or team is needed: Just a passion for the programme’s goals, and technical skills in any relevant area, including psychology, software development, data science, storytelling, product design, finance, or branding, to give just a few examples.

Eligible applicants from the partner institutions will be invited to an initial two-day hackathon, where they will have the chance to team up with fellow researchers and postgrads with complementary skills and formulate initial technology ideas. Following the hackathon, selected teams will be invited to join the full six-month project, with a time commitment of at least 15 hours per week.
