One HealthTech is a volunteer-led grassroots community that supports and promotes women and other under-represented groups to be future leaders in health innovation.

We inspire, celebrate, enable and champion diversity in healthtech. The OHT community comes from many different sectors, countries and backgrounds, and includes health and care providers, startups, corporates, academics and charities, as well as individual chaos-creating innovators.

Having started as a small meet-up in London in late 2015, OHT has grown to now have hubs all over the UK, as well as internationally, in Ireland, Sweden and Australia. All hubs are led by local community-builders, passionate about healthtech in their region.

We inspire the community through showcasing, connecting, profiling and laughing. We bring together doers, thinkers and trailblazers to change the face of future healthcare. The community is free to join – we feel our resources and the opportunities we provide should be as accessible as possible.

Vision:

That healthtech is vibrant, open and accessible.

Mission:

To empower local grassroots communities to thrive by inspiring, celebrating, enabling and championing diversity in healthtech.

Beliefs:

We believe innovation in heathtech should be accessible to everyone. We also believe in the power of human networks and communities to drive change, and that every voice should be heard so that technology can positively impact all.
