The evening will update everyone on the upcoming AXA Health Tech & You Awards, celebrating entrepreneurs who are providing the most valuable, trusted innovations for consumers in the marketplace. Now in its fifth year, the AXA Health Tech & You Awards has created two new categories in 2019 to recognise entrepreneurs in both early-stage start-ups and later stage businesses who are changing the way people think about their health while helping to solve the big problems in healthcare:
- The first Innovation category recognises pioneers in early-stage start-ups
- The second Excellence category recognises entrepreneurs leading later-stage businesses
These new categories will be underpinned by principles embracing diversity, health equality and social inclusion. Entries will be judged in accordance with how the entrepreneurs have succeeded in making a difference to people’s lives through their innovative approach and attention to creating solutions to address significant unmet consumer needs.
Overall, the 2019 AXA Health Tech & You Awards programme is looking for standalone solutions to help citizens take charge of their health and wellbeing, as well as smart applications that enrich the relationship between people and their careers (whether health professionals, friends or family).
