Surrey’s Health and Technology District is partnering with Halo Health, Canada’s first angel network for healthcare, on a new collaboration to expand and support health-tech innovations and entrepreneurs.
Located immediately adjacent to Surrey Memorial Hospital, the Health and Technology District is an ecosystem of innovators and entrepreneurs working alongside scientists, clinicians and health-care providers – each representing a range of technologies and research fields.
Halo Health connects Canada’s early stage health technology companies to entrepreneurial medical doctors and physicians that can provide critical domain expertise and capital through angel investments.
The partnership enables both groups to grow and inspire health innovation activities and initiatives, and address challenges associated with establishing a national, like-minded entrepreneurial network across communities of medicine.
“We are always looking for opportunities to collaborate with forward-thinking, leading edge organizations to expand our growing network of health-tech innovators and entrepreneurs,” says Rowena Rizzotti, Vice President of Healthcare and Innovations at the Health and Technology District.
“Partnering with Halo Health will empower both organizations to strengthen and expand innovative initiatives and health technologies, and to expand our collective impact across Canada and strengthen Canada’s overall performance in the health innovation domain.”
