Europe’s healthtech sector is growing and we are all facing the same challenges. The HealthTech Investor Summit brings together financers, entrepreneurs, mentors, experts and innovators, to join forces and address today’s challeges while showcasing Europe’s finest healthtech innovations.

The HealthTech Investor Summit is organized by the HealthTech Cluster MEDVIA, with the joint support of Flanders Investment & Trade, BioWin, Health~Holland, IMEC, HIHR and many more stakeholders active in this sector. This Summit is aiming at connecting European entrepreneurs and investors, and fostering collaboration between healthtech start-ups, scale-ups, clusters and investors.

Pitching on December 4 or 5/6

Together with our partners and sponsors an insightful program and pitching sessions has been created.
