London & Partners Digital Health Mission – Philadelphia

On Thursday, November 10, 2022, the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia collaborated with corporate member, London & Partners, London’s business growth and destination agency, to bring a delegation of some of the UK’s most exciting digital health scale-ups to Philadelphia. These British companies recently entered the US market or are getting ready to launch. The itinerary included meetings with key corporate buyers, stakeholders, and go-to-market experts. The BABCPHL partnered with the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia, The Commerce Department for the City of Philadelphia, and The Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development to welcome delegates and deliver information about the region and the life sciences ecosystem.  

Our roundtable discussion was hosted by William Sasso, Chairman Emeritus, Stradley Ronon, in the Firm’s beautiful office with magnificent views of the City. The dynamic conversation offered important data on the area, focusing on MedTech and digital health. Jason Hunt, Manager, International Business Attraction & Retention, Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development; Pierre-Olivier Lugez, Senior Director, International Business & Global Strategy, City of Philadelphia Dept. of Commerce; and James Medaglio, Director, Business Attraction & Expansion, Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia delivered valuable insight about “why Philadelphia” is a welcoming market, and how we can work together to enhance business ties between our region and the UK.  

The day ended with interactive networking sessions, drinks and games at Venture Café at The Science Center in University City. Lively conversations throughout the venue revolved around trends in MedTech innovation from cutting-edge technology demos to experiential sessions on FDA regulatory updates and early-stage funding. This informal gathering enabled regional MedTech thought leaders to meet with and hear from MedTech companies from across the pond.  

Special thanks to London & Partners for working with us to bring the UK companies to Philadelphia; to Stradley Ronon for hosting our roundtable; and to Venture Café for the fun and interactive evening.
