Walk With Path in Brazil for the Paralympic Games
Walk With Path participated in a competition organised by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) Brazil. Five of the most innovative companies from the UK, who offer healthcare-related solutions to improve the lives of people with disabilities were invited to go to Brazil during the 2016 Paralympics in Rio to take part in the Pitch at Paras competition. This involved a Dragons' Den style pitch to a selected audience of potential business partners, investors and decision-makers in the Brazilian healthcare market as well as Paralympic professionals, such as Team GB athletes Jody Cundy and Phil Hogg, who gave inspirational talks about their careers.
Walk With Path won the silver prize, which filled us with great pride given the incredibly high quality of presentations and innovations. Afterwards we were approached by Brazilian healthcare experts, such as a neurosurgeon and a movement disorder professional. The event culminated in a great networking session with a wide selection of both British and Brazilian healthcare players.The rest of my visit allowed me to explore business opportunities in Brazil, including tailored meetings with important business leaders. It was a fantastic trip and proved an important opportunity to profile Walk With Path.
