Serendip® Incubator and Accelerator Programme
The introduction of digital technology has brought about massive changes to our working lives and the way we interact with other people and organisations. While many industries have embraced digital working, healthcare has yet to fully capitalise on these opportunities. Through our Serendip® Incubator and Accelerator Programme the WMAHSN proactively supports the growth of start-ups that are passionate about addressing the challenges faced by the health and social care economy.
