Propel@YH is aimed at early-stage innovators who will benefit from our structured programme of support and is delivered in collaboration with partners Nexus at the University of Leeds, Hill Dickinson, Barclays Eagle Labs, West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership, Leeds Teaching Hospitals Innovation Pop Up and Leeds City Council.

These organisations work to help guide small to medium enterprises and innovators to meet the specific demands of the NHS. The programme includes a series of masterclasses, delivered by partners and supporters on all aspects of building a successful and sustainable business, such as funding, research and UK legal subjects.

Par Equity will be joining the programme as investors in residence and will also deliver a masterclass alongside the existing partners and supporters.

The partnership is part of the companies move to open offices in Leeds and Sheffield as it prepares to support fast growing companies in Yorkshire. Par Equity boasts an extensive knowledge of the Northern technology ecosystem in Yorkshire and Humber and beyond and the challenges the region faces, which makes it a perfect fit for the Propel@YH programme.
