Executive students of Health Management visit Portugal - day 1
Earlier this week we received a group of executive students in Health Management from TIAS business school. To kick off the program, the students participated in a Hackathon alongside 4 Lisbon based start-ups focused on various areas of the healthcare industry. We kindly thank our member PwC for allowing us to host our event at the marvelous Sottomayor Palace.
Following their Masterclass on the Portuguese Healthcare System, the students had a chance to listen to presentations from the start-ups, Nevaro, LisbonPH, HopeCare, and Kresk. These organizations introduced themselves and their areas of focus, while also sharing some of the challenges they currently face. The students then split into separate groups where they spent the afternoon working alongside their respective start-ups on a collaborative exercise to help find solutions to these challenges. This exercise worked to provide the start-ups with a fresh and international perspective, thus concluding the afternoon by having each group present their proposed solutions to the challenges.
We would like to thank Kresk, LisbonPH, HopeCare, and Nevaro for participating in our Hackathon as well as another big thank you to PwC for their warmth and hospitality.
