On July 3, the first conference of the Healthcare Networking series of events, dedicated to innovations in biotechnology, took place at Digital October. The most pressing issues, including practical ones, of commercializing medical technologies were discussed at the conference.

Experienced specialists, representatives of health care, and practical entrepreneurs participated in the discussion.

In the first section, two issues were discussed: what technologies are needed by Russian health care and how a niche can be selected for commercialization of this technology.

In the second section, four startups presented their projects and received advice from the audience on how to develop more effectively. Then, a freeform section took place in which it was possible to interact and exchange business contacts in an informal situation.
