Winston-Salem’s Innovation Quarter has announced the establishment of iQ Healthtech Labs, a physical and virtual hub for developing partnerships and breakthrough ideas within and through the iconic innovation district.
The goal of iQ Healthtech Labs is to reduce the time frame of taking healthtech solutions from idea to the marketplace by creating collaborations between Innovation Quarter tenants, traditional and non-traditional partners, commercial markets and potential investors.
In its early stages and while social distancing continues, iQ Healthtech Labs will frequently gather partners and collaborate virtually while growing its physical presence within Bailey Power Plant. Partner companies will share collaborative space with Innovation Quarter anchor tenants in an environment of creating making and developing.
iQ Healthtech Labs are organized based on the growing sectors of focus that have begun to emerge and will continue to be intentionally cultivated within the Innovation Quarter. The sectors include:
- Value and Health Transformation
- Healthy Aging
- Virtual Health
- Personalized Care and Precision Medicine
- Learning Systems
