Sopra Steria a sponsor of competitive healthcare hackathon, mentoring start-up participants

  Edinburgh, 19 January 2017: Sopra Steria is pleased to be a sponsor of the Future Health Product Forge competitive healthcare hackathon at CodeBase in Edinburgh from Thursday 19 January until Sunday 22 January, where we will also have four mentors to help start-up participants with their strategy and tactical vision, scaling product, marketing, pitching to VCs, team management - and anything else to do with start-up life!

Participants form small cross-functional teams to work on a product prototype with support from industry experts in the NHS and the wider technology community. It’s an opportunity for participants to develop new skills, network with professionals, meet potential employers or even kick-start their own company.
