Innovation in good health


You are the change we're
looking for

The innovators that we help often have a personal reason for seeking to solve health problems: maybe it’s their desire to get fitter or to help a family member with a life-limiting condition. But whatever drives these individuals and small businesses, our awards programme exists to support and champion these thinkers and creators – we put them first.

We’re here to promote the smart people who dare to dream. We’re here to support the visionaries, who are shaping the future of healthcare technology right now, making a tangible difference to the health and wellbeing of our customers today – and for years to come.

We are inspired by you. We are here for you. Tell us how you are making a real difference.


  • Innovations in the Early Diagnosis of Dementia

    Let’s fight dementia together. We’re looking for pioneering ideas and developments that will help us diagnose dementia and the underlying related diseases. Whether your solution is for the end consumer or medical experts, we want to hear from you.

  • Women Entrepreneurs in Health Tech

    Our newest category helps support women entrepreneurs in health technology. We want to drive up the number of health tech businesses founded by women, after all 50% of the world’s population are female.

  • Staying Independent with Tech Challenge

    We are looking for technologies which can help monitor and subsequently alert (in case of emergency) a caregiver when one of their users is in distress.

  • The Peri-Menopause Challenge

    We are searching for technologies which help give women better control of their health. We want to help women easily track symptoms of peri-menopause, with relevant clinically-validated hormone levels, so they can better understand their experience and can get better support and information.
