Australian Healthcare Week Start Up Zone


Due to the current situation regarding COVID-19, we have made the decision to postpone the 10th Annual Australian Healthcare Week to the new dates of 17 - 18 March 2021. The venue will remain the same at the International Convention Centre, Sydney. For more information on this, please have a read of our recent press release.

The Start Ups Pitch Fest will still be going ahead as planned, and applications are still open!


The Start Up Zone, Pitch Fest and program will be running as planned on these new dates! Applications will remain open until the end of February 2021.

Following on from its successful launch in 2019, the Australian Healthcare Week Start Up Zone will once again feature the latest from the Australian health start up ecosystem, while highlighting the increasing importance of technology as a tool to improve patient outcomes, enhance clinician effectiveness and reduce costs.

What will be taking place in the Start up Zone?

  • Free-to-attend Start Up Theatre - with case studies from organisations such as CoVentured, Doclink, Atlassian and more on the state of the health start up ecosystem.
  • The Pitch Fest  – giving the brightest and best start ups the chance to pitch their vision to our audience of clinicians and vendors, and the chance to take out the title of being crowned Australia’s Healthcare Start Up of 2021 (prize to be confirmed)
  • Dedicated start up area on the exhibition floor - we’ve made specific start up sized booths, meaning that we have increased the ideas per m2 significantly, making this one of the must attend areas of the exhibition floor
