Tech London Advocates (TLA) has launched a competition to find innovative health tech startups.

The competition has been organised through TLA’s Health Tech Working Group, which is hoping to encourage health technology companies in London.

Tech London Advocates (TLA) is a network of more than 500 people in the technology ecosystem who link up to promote London’s emerging tech sector by dealing with issues and challenges they see on the horizon.

This competition allows the organisation to particularly support startups in the digital health space. Startups will go through a series of “speed mentoring” sessions where they will be able to gain valuable insights from members of the working group who will then choose finalists and eventually a winner.

“We have a group of highly experienced and enthusiastic mentors ready to offer their help and advice to get your startup on the road to success,” said Melinda Nicci, founder of baby2body and Tech London Advocate.

The winner will be provided with a platform to speak at the next TLA event in the autumn that will have tech experts, company founders and investors in attendance.

“We are aiming to provide a platform for tech startups in the digital health space, enabling them to grow by leveraging the unique crowd capabilities of the TLA, and creating a more vibrant high-growth entrepreneurial community in health tech for London,” she said.

Interested entrepreneurs should apply via the TLA website by 20 June 2014.
