MAA Alumni

Each year we receive significant applications to participate on our MAA Programme. Each year Innovators who apply to the Market Access Accelerator go through a rigorous selection process, including paper shortlisting and an interview with a mixed clinical/digital/business panel. We have to reject a lot of good companies because we keep the cohort small so we can give each one a significant amount of time and effort throughout the programme.

The companies selected to participate and the innovations they bring to market we believe have significant potential to transform the NHS as they develop into successful digital health businesses, and we have been delighted to have worked with them.
