The eHealth Embark programme afforded me the time and space, away from the day job, to plan the next steps for the product and its development. Working with the dConnect team supported by Amazon Web Services (AWS), the programme provided the team and me with tools and processes to validate our business proposition and, more importantly for us, provided access to technical, clinical, and regulatory expertise, and a network of like-minded individuals on the same journey. It has been a rewarding 6-week programme, which I highly recommend.Alan HigginsCEO of Ingenium
What can I say... Every week just blew my mind - I got the opportunity to meet some of the most exceptionally talented people from AWS and DkIT, in our lectures, my mentors and the 1-1 sessions. This 6 week programme has catapulted me at least 6 months ahead. Thanks so much to everyone...Gordon Mullins, CEO of MindfulIVF
