BOCAhealthcare on Tour – expansion of our network
Even in the digital age, it is a must for every entrepreneur to seek direct contact with market participants. This applies all the more to start-up entrepreneurs who are just starting their business. For the BOCAhealthcare team, the coming week will be under the sign of network expansion.
The week starts for us in Milan. On November 25th our team will take part in a one-day workshop of the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca. The aim is to discuss future development trends in the healthcare industry and potential links for working together on new business ideas. In addition to an elevator pitch on our part, the format of the workshop also includes discussions in larger groups and one-on-one discussions between our team members and the respective specialists from AstraZeneca. The focus of the workshop will be on the potential development of new joint solutions for the care of cardiological-nephrological patients. We already serve this area with our BOCAhealth.
