Access a £108 billion UK Life Sciences market without leaving your office chair!

With a13% increase in turnover value generated in the UK life sciences market from £96 billion to £108 billion in 2023, the UK is the perfect launch pad for ambitious European med-tech, digital health, pharma, biopharma, CRO and academic companies to land and expand into. Success in the UK also is often a platform to expand into the US.

GTM Global is hosting a suite of Virtual Market Entry Life Sciences Workshops for European Health-tech and Healthcare scale-up companies, where from the comfort of your own office chair – you can find out how to land and expand into this lucrative and fast growing UK market.

On registration, a member of the GTM team will speak with you directly and qualify your UK market entry plans. We'll identify with you a roadmap for UK expansion. We'll then directly connect you to a suite of 1-2-1 virtual sessions with UK experts in the NHS, academia, business development, funding and compliance.

Imagine the huge value of having these qualified virtual sessions on UK market entry, without the costs of flights, time and accommodation!
