Finding new collaboration partners or mentors can be tough. EIT Health offers you a network of health experts from 140 partners in 16 European countries and beyond.
Our team organizes “Startup Pitch and Matchmaking Workshops” where biotech, medtech and digital health start-ups can meet with industry partners and business experts. You do not only get the chance to find potential collaboration partners but also input on your business model.
How does it work?
Start-ups, corporates and business experts provide a short profile in advance which will be put together into an eCatalogue and then send out to the participants.
- Pitch session
Each start-up gives an elevator pitch during the morning session
The programme creates lot of networking opportunities, e.g. during the lunch break
- Matchmaking session
Matchmaking tools facilitate 1:1-meeting between start-ups, corporates and business experts during the afternoon session
About the first workshop in 2017
