Going Global: Growth and Export Strategies for Healthtech

The Going Global program is bringing international experts to Melbourne to help Victorian healthtech companies take their products to global markets.

The program covers global regulatory, reimbursement, market access and commercialisation strategies, with a focus on key export markets in the UK, North America, Europe and India.

How does it work?

The Going Global program consists of six international market modules, and six local entrepreneur roundtable lunches.

Each of the international market modules takes place over four days in Melbourne and comprises:

  • one introductory seminar event (BioBriefing)
  • one focussed market-access workshop
  • a personalised advisory session for each participating company.

The Entrepreneur Roundtable Lunches are relaxed and intimate gatherings with local founders and experienced executives from biotech, medtech and healthtech companies who have experience in taking Victorian health innovations into global markets.

You do not have to participate in all modules to take part in the program – just register for the module(s) that are most relevant to your global business aspirations and international market strategies. If you are unable to participate in a full module, you can register for the module BioBriefing, which will be advertised through the usual BioMelbourne Network channels.

  • a full-day intensive workshop for one company representative
  • a 30-minute advisory session with the module leader (up to four organisation representatives can attend)
  • an invitation to attend the exclusive BioMelbourne Network Entrepreneur Roundtable Lunches with local business leaders who have succeeded in taking products to global markets.

The fee is $550 (incl. GST) for your first Going Global module, then $440 (incl. GST) for any subsequent module(s).
