Breakthrough Digital Health

A growth playbook for the changing digital health economy by innovators, for innovators.

Make or break

The direction of the market and unsettled economic circumstances are changing the dynamics of success in digital health. 

On the back of a pandemic-fuelled innovation and fundraising boom, the future outlook is more combative and complex – defined by competition for capital, regulatory scrutiny and fast cross-border expansion. Raising capital on sustainable terms, bringing effective products to market quickly and protecting competitive position are all increasingly critical to success, and increasingly challenging to achieve.

Digital health leaders need a new growth playbook that is built for this moment.

Breakthrough Digital Health combines research with a collection of ideas and experiences from digital health leaders and the Taylor Wessing experts who partner them, exploring how to grow through make or break moments.

How we can help you break through

In dynamic digital health, success depends on the ability to bring new solutions to market, realise revenue and scale quickly. Progress is often disrupted where fast-paced innovation collides with the law, but opportunities abound for digital health innovators that can break through.

Taylor Wessing helps digital health companies grow through make or break moments. We spot legal issues early that could compromise vision or value, support clients to weigh commercial decisions against regulatory limitations and propose simple solutions that overcome inherent industry complexity.
