    HealthTech @ TechConnect Europe

    Welcome to our HealthTech event @TechConnect Europe

    The Nordics and Medicon Valley feature world-class healthcare and research institutions, highly skilled hardware and software expertise, a thriving game industry and a strong startup scene. When TechConnect comes to Malmö from the 19th to the 21st of October this year, this is a unique opportunity to showcase regional life science strongholds and involve the many international stakeholders from academia and start-ups that are participating in TechConnect.

    In order to seize this opportunity, Medicon Valley Alliance (MVA) and Invest in Skåne have joined forces for this Healthtech event and offer you two opportunities to be involved: as a participant, or as a pitching company in one of the ‘HealthTech Challenges’ on the programme. In both cases, as a member of MVA, you will have access to the event for free, even if you’re not a registered participant at TechConnect Europe.

    Join us and be part of creating tomorrow’s HealthTech solutions!

    Date: 21st of October, 2020
    Time: 08:30 – 13:00
    Hosts: Medicon Valley Alliance and Invest in Skåne
    Venue: TechConnect Europe, Clarion Hotel Malmö Live
    Cost: Free of charge for MVA members

    We asked a number of global pharma and healthcare stakeholders to come up with a challenge – a problem or opportunity that exists within their daily business where a HealthTech solution would have a positive impact. They are looking for new HealthTech solutions and stakeholders interested in applying themselves to some of the challenges within the world of pharma and healthcare. Please find here the list of the companies, the challenges that they present, and a link to their full descriptions. Maybe you have an idea how to solve one of these challenges? In that case, you are very welcome to apply to pitch. You’ll find more information about what to include in your application in the description of the HealthTech challenges below. Submit your application through the link provided by the 16th of August 2020.
