The new Connected Health Innovation and Commercialisation Centre (CHICC) in Melbourne’s CBD has been launched, and will offer services including skills training, a concierge to connect businesses with investors, and an accelerator program.
According to a statement from state industry minister Ben Carroll (second from left), the William Street-located centre will support up to 500 people from Victorian companies each year, brokering connections with healthcare organisations, innovators and investors to assist commercialisation.
The $2.4 million co-working, mentoring and workshop space is being delivered by digital health organisation ANDHealth.
“Victoria invests in bold ideas that have the potential to change lives and this new centre will help bring our inventions to the world – creating local jobs and cementing our status as a global healthtech leader,” said Carroll.
According to the statement on Thursday, local digital health companies such as clinical support software provider Macuject and diagnosis company Atmo Biosciences were likely to benefit from the new facility.
