You may think you have the best idea or product in the world, but asking people to part with their money to pay for it is another matter.
Determining whether your potential product or service has a market – and one sizeable enough on which to build a strong business – lies at the heart of successful healthtech commercialisation.
The Know your Customers and your Market Programme focuses on two tools: database search support and a workshop series. The journey is illustrated in the below diagram, with links to further information.
How do you find out if your offering will hit its mark in the market and gain the optimal product/market fit?
There are several organisations in New Zealand's market validation ecosystem – including government organisations, industry associations, incubators, and other private companies – that can share resources, networks and provide other support on your journey. Here's a snapshot of what's available.
You can learn more about what each organisation offers via the links below, and you can find more organisations listed on the HTA Directory.
Please get in touch if you would like your business to be added to the above list.
If you have specific questions about your market validation, you can request a discussion with a member of the HTA team. They can use our databases to find essential data to help validate your market. To make sure we connect you with the right people, please complete this form and we’ll be in touch.Database Access Form
