Is it possible that our region could develop a healthcare innovation ecosystem?
On June 1, through the Blueprint for Regional Economic Growth (BREG) Healthcare Industry Sector, 150 regional doctors, biomedical engineers, entrepreneurs, and other diverse minds from healthcare and general business sectors came together for the Healthcare Innovation Forum. The agenda boasted 28 speakers who led participants through a day of innovative possibilities aimed at building our regional healthcare ecosystem. Speakers shared insight into the healthcare application of Wichita State's National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) and upcoming offerings of their Innovation Campus, had local entrepreneurs showcasing their latest healthcare-related innovations, and highlighted success stories from communities who have successfully evolved their own healthcare ecosystems.
Active discussions are now underway on how to leverage the connections made at this event to further stimulate entrepreneurial activity in this sector. If you would like to share your thoughts on how to cultivate the region's healthcare ecosystem, please contact Heather Denker at firstname.lastname@example.org or (316) 268.1131.
