Thank you to all companies and innovators who applied for eHealth Embark. The calibre of each applicant was impressive and those who were not selected have been directed to other business development programmes in DkIT. Our invitation to reach out to dconnect for support with your digital health innovation is always open.
eHealth Embark participants now commence a six-week programme consisting of mentoring and specialist masterclasses ranging from customer discovery and validation, through to assessing market opportunity, and mapping funding and growth steps. Through our collaboration with the Royal College of Surgeons Hospital Group (RCSI HG), we can provide participants with clinical expertise and insights to assess the clinical need they are addressing and develop a robust, appropriate and sustainable solution.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) will provide business and technical training in areas such as data analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. This will empower participants to leverage the latest cloud technologies in their product development.
Experienced tutors and mentors will guide participants through assessing market opportunity, and mapping funding and growth steps. Participants will have access to clinical, regulatory, funding, and business expertise to support the development of innovative product roadmaps and pathways to market.
The programme will take place from April 28th to June 9th 2022. At the end of the programme, participants will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges. A winner will be selected and awarded $100,000 in AWS credits, and access to a free hot-desking at the Regional Development Centre in DkIT for six months.

When John, Kyle and David entered the iDays student innovation competition in Dundalk Institute of Technology, they wanted to use their creativity to solve health problems and thought it would be an interesting experience. When they won the competition and were invited to represent DKIT in Vienna, they couldn't believe their luck!
