Our AXA Health Tech & You programme discovers, promotes and supports the inventors and innovations in the exciting field of health tech.
The innovators that we help often have a special reason for seeking to solve health problems: maybe it’s their desire to improve their fitness or to aide a family member with a life-limiting condition. But whatever motivates 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 endorse the smart people who dare to dream. We’re here to support the thinkers, who are shaping the future of healthcare technology right now, making a noticeable 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.
