Yeah wait… what exactly is it again?!
Why does it exist?
And what do I get?
Well dear friends - Let me give you a refresher
The WTH Private Community Spiel 💜 🍩
It can be *hard AF* navigating the health & health tech space - breaking into the right circles, building a product or company, and finding the right resources, advice & people.
There’s a lot of noise and BS. Often resulting in a massive waste of time, money and resources chasing the wrong things… Not to mention, it can be a tad lonely.
So, why not make it easier?
Shortcut some of the BS?
Connect and learn with the best?
In a safe vetted space, with other passionate peeps?
Well - this is where the What the Health Private Community comes in.
It’s a vetted community for Aussie health tech innovators, carers, experts and operators to connect, collaborate and support each other on this journey. Sharing knowledge, connections and insights via a private slack community, directory, and exclusive events.
✨ It's your ultimate hack to make life in health tech easier ✨
🍩 Who the hell are we?
What the Health is a community and media brand passionate about improving healthcare.
We believe in a future where healthcare and health are supercharged through collaboration, tech & innovation - empowering patients, professionals and people. As well as the stupidly huge opportunity to build killer businesses around these things - to create both great commercial and health outcomes.

💕Don’t believe us? Not sure its worth it?
Check out what some of the first cohort had to say…
WTH has been a valuable online community for me as a founder. I've really enjoyed being able to link with health and technology peers around Australia and share information and ask for advice. Brisbane isn't an isolated small town, but nowhere else gives you this kind of access to this kind of connection.
The 'Donut' Zoom meetings with other members have been a highlight - I've shared ideas with so many other amazing people. WTH really does feel like a community
~ Founder & Public Health Specialist
Events are apparently ok too..
💡 How does it work?
It’s our goal to ensure it’s a bloody fantastic experience and actually valuable, so we’re still strictly capping the intake number of each cohort to ensure that we can deliver the best experience, connections and engagement. Don’t worry, as soon as we can scale effectively - we’ll look to add more of you legends.
So, if you reckon it might be a fit and want to join (and why wouldn’t you?!)
Fill out our stupidly long application form
Why? Because we want to make sure you’re committed, we get the right mix of people and we have as much information about you in order to best help and showcase you to others in the member’s directory
Once applications close - we will get back to you with whether or not you have been successful
If you have been - we’ll send you onboarding information, a payment link and a calendar link to book your onboarding session
If you haven’t but are still keen to join, we’ll reopen apps again in June
We onboard you (yay) and have fun bants for 6 months 🎉 And if you like it - you can stay for as long as you like
For this 2nd cohort, as a thank you for joining as one of our first few intakes we’re keeping it just $179 for 6 months (or ~$29.00 per month) 💜 🚀
How’s that to get unlimited access to some killer peeps, knowledge, exclusive events and discounts valued at >$50,000?!
And… you can totally add it as a business expense or industry membership at tax time 😉
Of course, any questions or suggestions - I’d love to hear from you 😊
Events pics for proof they exist (and fun)
