About the SHIP:

The SHIP (Ship for Health Innovation Pitches) is an exclusive event for EIT Health Germany partners and friends to hear about the newest healthcare innovations developed by German, Swiss & Austrian start-ups. BioTech, MedTech and DigitalHealth start-ups are invited to pitch their innovative products and services in front of an expert jury and the EIT Health Germany partnership.
In 2019, twelve teams are competing for one of the few EIT Health Germany 2019 Head Start Funding Awards. These awards support start-ups/SMEs in realising their next steps towards the market and shorten the time-to-market for their innovative products and services through the provision of non-equity grants worth EUR 50,000.00 each. (To find out more about the finalists please click here.) Additionally, the six pre-qualified Semifinalists for the European Health Catapult will showcase their product inventions before joining the semifinals of the European Health Catapult later this year. The European Health Catapult is a collaboration between EIT Health and HealthAxis Europe.
