Queensland Health is inviting mature health start-ups to pitch to a captive audience of 850+ healthcare leaders at the inaugural eHealth Queensland Expo on 31 May 2016 at the Royal International Convention Centre.

"We're looking for the best up and coming health start-ups to showcase their businesses through a two minute power pitch.
"As an added bonus we've managed to secure real life Shark Tank mentor and entrepreneur Steve Baxter as part of our innovation panel and futurist Chris Riddell as our keynote speaker and MC for the day.
"This is a truly unique opportunity for health start-ups to promote their businesses to potential customers and for delegates to understand what innovative businesses are being built by local entrepreneurs," Mr McCririck said.
Start-ups can apply online at http://ehealthexpo.health.qld.gov.au/search-for-startups/ by submitting a two minute video and brief bio by close of business Friday 13 May 2016.
