Hot in Healthcare 2018
On Thursday 1 November 2018, the very first edition of Hot in Healthcare took place at B. Amsterdam, Europe’s biggest start-up hub. We were very excited to welcome 150 key players in the life sciences sector, including start-ups and scale-ups, investors, investment banks, patient organizations, Big Pharma, MedTech and representatives from the public sector.
The afternoon consisted of two sections: Life Sciences Dealmakers and Future of Healthcare. Topics discussed included: How can we improve access to healthcare? What impact could digital technology have on the future of healthcare? Who should pay for innovation?
Hot in Healthcare 2018 was organized by Baker McKenzie in collaboration with HollandBIO.
Martine van de Laar (initiator): “Healthcare is in our DNA. Ever since Abbott became one of our first clients in the 1930s we have been representing pharmaceutical and medical devices companies from all over the globe. But over the past decades the needs of our life sciences clients have changed. Having a thorough understanding of their business, and insight in political and social developments that could affect it, has become more important than ever. Listening to the needs of our clients brought the idea of Hot in Healthcare to life. We invite everyone in the life sciences industry, from large industry players to HealthTech, MedTech and Biotech start-ups, from healthcare providers to policy makers to join us on the 1st of November and discuss today’s hottest topics with some of the most important names in the industry.”
