HealthTech Nordic Investor Forum 2018


Welcome to the HealthTech Nordic Investor Forum 2018, now running for the 2nd consecutive year.

On October 24, 14 selected Nordic startups with world-class scalable solutions and strong international ambitions within the area of HealthTech will meet European investors with an interest in HealthTech.
