OUR IMPACT

Building a business is hard. But it takes more than funding to get past the hurdles and realise an idea. That's why the BBFH Challenge is about working together. Creating pathways for individuals to seek guidance, feedback and support from industry experts and connect with the right people to help bring more ideas to market that can make a difference to people's health.
