From concept, pitching, fundraising, and clinical testing, the third webisode will focus on developing and producing a new product – in this case, a cost-effective infant incubator. James Roberts, CEO of mOm Incubator, a designer and manufacturer of incubators, will discuss best practices for managing clinical testing of new products and incorporating feedback from clinicians.

After University James decided to start a company to help bring the mOm innovation to market. He has been lucky enough to be joined by an A-list group of people, who have helped take the concept to market. The Incubator has now been fully developed, is regulated having received CE marking, and has saved lives both in the NHS and overseas.
