KQ Labs launches internship programme with London Business School
KQ Labs, an accelerator programme for high growth potential companies in the area of data-driven health, has teamed up with London Business School to launch an exciting initiative. LBS students will have the opportunity to work alongside KQ Labs portfolio start-up companies on healthtech consulting projects over 6-8 weeks in Spring 2022.
Participating KQ Labs portfolio companies cover a wide range of health areas including women's health, rare diseases, and cancer to name a few. LBS students will have the opportunity to work on projects ranging from raising finance, to market research, to product development, and beyond.
The KQ Labs team is very excited about this new initiative, enabling knowledge exchange through exposure to leading healthtech innovation and business insights. Students will be able to work alongside start-up founders, experience the start-up environment and support the companies by using business methodologies they have learned in their programmes, applying these in data driven health, a field which is already having major impact across the entire health landscape.
Dr Barbara Domayne-Hayman, who leads the KQ Labs programme, commented: “We are really delighted for KQ Labs to be working with London Business School, a world leading business school. This will enable the business leaders of tomorrow to meet pioneers in data driven health innovation in the KQ Labs portfolio, for mutual benefit. We believe this internship programme will bring tangible benefits to the companies as well as being a truly unique experience for the students”.
The London Business School Career Centre said: “We are excited to be launching this collaboration with KQ Labs to connect our talented students with some of the best up and coming data-driven health startups in the UK. Health technology is becoming one of the most sought after sectors our students are interested in and we delighted to be able to create more opportunities in this space.”
