We’re excited to announce the third edition of HealthStartup to be held June, 26 in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. The theme of this edition is Big Data; therefore we’re looking for startups that place data at the heart of their business model and business proposition. These can include startups that capture, monitor, aggregate, integrate, analyze or visualize health-related data for any number of purposes, including patient monitoring, medical diagnosis, medical decision support, medical research, public health monitoring, self-tracking/quantified self, fitness tools, systems integration and so on. The startup does not need to be ‘big data’ project in the formal sense (i.e. already collecting and analysing huge amounts of data) but it should have a longer-term ‘big data’ vision of some sort. Our definition is purposely kept broad – we don’t see ‘big data’ as a distinct category of startups but as an opportunity for practically any health startup that is collecting/using data. The goal of the event is to explore that opportunity in-depth (and if you’re pitching, to evaluate and improve your big data vision).
For HealthStartup III we are looking for 5 high-potential startups to pitch their business to a hand-picked audience of investors and healthcare decision makers. Following the pitches, each startup will be the focus of a 90 minute break-out session. This is probably going to be one of the most intense and rewarding feedback sessions you will ever have.
If you’d like to present your startup at HealthStartup III ‘Big Data’ then please apply here.
