We are delighted to announce that HealthMakeSpace has been selected for the Bethnal Green Ventures accelerator programme.

HealthMakeSpace is an online networking platform connecting NHS doctors interested in technology with start-ups that need their clinical expertise.

Dr Faheem Ahmed of Selfless, said:

“The NHS requires tech solutions that meet the needs of patients and that fit into current processes within our hospitals and GP practices. To speed up adoption of tech, clinicians should take a leading role in building it. We have developed HealthMakeSpace to enable health tech developers to find the clinical guidance they need to help their product get adopted into everyday practice.

We are looking forward to using the expertise of the Bethnal Green Ventures team to grow HealthMakeSpace, and build on last year’s success. This is particularly exciting for Selfless as it is one of our first spin-outs.”

Bethnal Green Ventures (BGV) is an accelerator programme, early stage investor and support network for ambitious tech for good startups focusing on solving problems in health, education, sustainability and democracy.

Jessica Stacey, Partner at Bethnal Green Ventures, welcomed HealthMakeSpace into the programme.

“At Bethnal Green Ventures we’re building a community of startups using technology to tackle some of the toughest social and environmental challenges.

Health Make Space is one of 12 teams selected to join our autumn accelerator programme, and we’re excited to be working with them as we’re particularly interested in tech solutions to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes within the NHS.”
