What Our BRIGHT Ideate Participants Say
Quote marks

The BRIGHT seminar helped me reflect on some of my company's decisions, and made us realise the gaps in our ideation process and need validation that we didn't realise before.

Quote marks

The BRIGHT program topics are extremely relevant to founders who are right at the start of their product ideation journey. Because of the focus on the digital health sector, the information is directly relevant and highly useful.

This was the most useful one-day session I have done. I can see how I can immediately apply the BRIGHT program and the guest speakers knew their content well.

The application must be:
  • Ideating or developing their prototype
  • Technologies must fall within the FDA definition of Digital Health
Innovation/ business level:
  • An idea or early prototype
Who can apply:
  • Entrepreneurs and Innovators wanting to navigate the commercialisation journey in digital health

I’d like to speak about my company or idea with someone from ANDHealth. Who can I speak to?
If you are unsure if you’re eligible for the program, feel free to contact our program team below. Alternatively we encourage you to book an office hours meeting here and will be in contact with an outcome or to set up a meeting to better understand your product.
Do I have to commit to all days of the program? OR What are the participation requirements?
We strongly encouraged to full participation in each workshop. The BRIGHT programs will build on each day’s learnings throughout the program – while we are less stringent in the virtual delivery of the program for full attendance, we do require a commitment to day one of the BRIGHT framework content. If you need to miss a session in day two or three, please let the program manager know and they will organise accordingly.
