Texas Trade Mission

29 April 2019 - 03 May 2019

ABHI is leading a mission to Texas this April, taking in visits to the cities of Austin and San Antonio. The mission will provide HealthTech companies with unprecedented access to leadership teams across world-class hospital systems in the region. 

The mission will begin in Austin, home to the ABHI Innovation Hub, a unique partnership between ABHI and the Dell Medical School. The Hub, which now houses 16 UK companies, provides access to Dell's unrivaled facilities, alongside a network of clinicians, investors and mentors. Following meetings with Dell's senior faculty, the delegation will go on to visit some of Texas' leading hospital systems housed around the Austin city area.

In San Antonio, the UK group will experience the city's proud attachment to its national military, and the opportunities that lie therein in collaborative partnerships with the military, humanitarian and emergency healthcare communities. 

“A superbly organised visit, with plenty of very high calibre meetings with the major health related organisations in each city. As a direct result of this trip we have been able to engage with key clinicians in the areas we are targeting and are now moving forward at pace. The trip was an excellent and efficient use of time – we could not have engaged as many people as quickly as this without the relationships that the ABHI have already established.”

Andrew Thelwell, Chief Commercial Officer, FirstKind 

The Texas attitude to innovation is very open, with a real willingness to collaborate. Adoption often means a springboard for the rest of the USA, and with regional headquarters of some of the country’s largest healthcare providers located in the state, it makes sense to not only sell products, but conduct further R&D and develop strategies amongst the clinical ecosystem that companies will find themselves in.
