Aiming to accelerate the international scaling of Nordic startups

HealthTech Nordic represents a fast-growing community of 250+ high potential Nordic startups, offering a variety of empowering healthtech solutions. The new solutions allow for a paradigm shift, providing new and better ways of giving and receiving healthcare.

HealthTech Nordic accelerates the growth of startups and unite pioneers in the field of HealthTech. We’re here to connect the dots between innovative solutions, healthcare and a global market. Together, we advance ideas and unite resources to address worldwide healthcare needs while we drive regional development and job creation.

We’re aiming to help 100 startups within HealthTech to grow and to create 700 new jobs in the Öresund-Kattegatt-Skagerack region by contributing to the startups’ growth and help them go international. 20 startups are expected to become international fast-growers and 5 international companies are expected to establish in the region. The project provides a strategy and know-how on employment growth based on inter-regional assets and global needs.

The project is partially financed by Interreg Öresund-Kattegat-Skagerrak, European Regional Development Fund.
