EyeFocus is the world’s first accelerator and innovation program for eye-care. We support businesses helping people prevent, cure, and live with eye disease and blindness. EyeFocus is launching a second global innovation program to build and connect the eye-care innovation ecosystem. This meetup and pitch off is for anyone innovating in Eye Care, from academics through startups to funded companies. We are a social enterprise building a global ecosystem of innovators in eye care, and we are visiting Boston from London to find innovators, founders, and experts to join the EyeFocus network. The EyeFocus Meetup & Pitch Off will bring together Boston’s leading eye-care startups, to meet with some of the city’s leading academics, clinicians, and researchers. 

The evening will feature a panel discussion from our experts on innovation work in eye-care, followed by short pitches from startups, researchers, and businesses that are innovating in the eye-care sector, followed by networking. Everyone attending will become part of the EyeFocus global network, and be included in our future events in Boston and around the world. 

This event is for anyone interested in innovation and healthcare, attendees will include entrepreneurs, academics, clinicians, corporates, students, investors, and charities. 

A free event sponsored by Bayer Health Care.
