Why we want to hear from you

If you are driving innovation and efficiencies within academic research and healthcare, we are particularly interested in hearing from you. Together, we can make a genuine difference, not just to BMJ and our partners, but to hundreds of millions of people across the world.

Our support packages are tailored to meet your needs that will depend on your development stage. This means that for early concepts, we can deliver product development programmes to create robust product roadmaps and a confidently successful launch based on thorough evidence-based market validation and testing. 

For working prototypes, whilst expanding on the influence, brand recognition and reach, we also offer support in the areas of prime advertising real estate and public relations, content, product solutions, clinical support, events and engagement, mentoring, technology and commercial expertise, networking among innovators and business, growth strategies, and exit strategies. 

“Our New Ventures investment programme combines the creative spirit and ingenuity of external innovators with the reach and brand recognition of one of the world’s leading healthcare knowledge providers, BMJ. ”
