Disruptive Social Entrepreneurship
The George Institute is driving impact through disruptive entrepreneurship.
We aim to challenge the status quo by fast-tracking the development of innovative and affordable solutions that address our biggest health challenges, and reach underserved populations globally by harnessing the power of the private sector.
Through disruptive social entrepreneurship, a strategic priority of The George Institute, we are translating research into practice by developing innovative, evidence-based healthcare solutions that are designed to address unmet global health needs. We are making these solutions accessible to those who need them most, and in doing so, fundamentally changing the way healthcare is delivered.
That’s why we created Genovate – a social entrepreneurship program – to facilitate the translation of research, through innovative, affordable, evidence-based solutions to the world’s biggest health problems.
What we do
At Genovate, we work with our researchers to identify and understand the biggest unmet global health needs, and with our partners, to facilitate the commercialisation process.
Our goal is to harness the power of the private sector and turn innovative healthcare solutions into successful social enterprises - to increase the scale and sustainability of our research, and have the greatest impact on health outcomes and health systems globally.
Global health insight:
We leverage The George Institute’s international network of experts and collaborators to identify solutions to unmet global health needs. We work with partners to create solutions with lasting impact on health outcomes.
Through training, leadership and mentoring programs Genovate is expanding on the strong culture of innovation at The George Institute. By building on this foundation and developing entrepreneurial skills in our people, we are creating an environment where new ideas flourish and translation of research through entrepreneurship is a focus.
Genovate is dedicated to creating new partnerships between The George Institute and bright minds in health technology, software development, engineering, start-ups, business, and more. Together we are creating and commercialiseing new solutions to healthcare challenges that will improve patient outcomes worldwide.
Pathway to commercialisation:
Genovate is working with our partners and George Health (ADD LINK) to create a clear commercialisation path from problem, to solution, to market success. We provide the tools and support to move new healthcare solutions along this path.
We are leveraging our global health expertise to support others in their pursuit of disruptive entrepreneurship. We have partnered with the UNSW Sydney to deliver Health 10x - an accelerator program for start-ups whose product or service addresses unmet health needs in underserved markets.
Health10x combines UNSW Sydney’s expertise in accelerating business growth with The George Institute’s global health insights, to support new start-ups to develop health solutions with impact.
