Australian Healthcare Week Start Up Zone


The most exciting new addition to the Australian Healthcare Week 2019 is the Westpac Start Up Zone!

Last year, we asked our community what they wanted us to add to the exhibition, and a massive 68% of you voted for both a stage and zone dedicated specifically to start ups.

You asked, we delivered.  

In partnership with Westpac and CoVentured, the Start Up Zone will feature the latest from the Australian health start up ecosystem, while highlighting the increasing importance of technology as a tool to improve patient outcomes, enhance clinician effectiveness and reduce costs.

What will be taking place in the Start up Zone?

  • Free to attend Start Up Theatre - with case studies from organisations such as CoVentured, ANDHealth and ilab UQ on the state of the health start up ecosystem.
  • The Pitch Fest  – giving the brightest and best start ups the chance to pitch their vision to our audience of clinicians and vendors, and the chance to win a mentorship from Westpac (prize to be confirmed)
  • Dedicated start up area on the exhibition floor - we’ve made specific start up sized booths, meaning that we have increased the ideas per m2 significantly, making this one of the must attend areas of the exhibition floor
