Applications are now closed. The selected startups will be announced soon!
New world – New rules
Thecall for applicationsfor Startup Discovery 2020 pitching sessions is now open with the possibility to engage even more startups than before.
As a startup, you will get an exclusive access to top companies and investors from health innovation vertical, global visibility and opportunities to participate in other activities of the conference hosted by the giants of pharmaceutical and medical industries. Don’t forget that the leading companies from your industry come to Frontiers Health looking for innovative products that meet their needs.
Which startups are a match? We are looking for startups in the health industry from any part of the world. The startups should have already launched the product in the market, and have at least initial traction or preferably be at seed and later stages.
This year we will form a number of startup cohorts based on the areas of their activities which are:
Digital Therapeutics & Biomarkers Digital therapeutics are evidence-based therapeutic interventions to prevent, manage, or treat a medical disorder or disease. Digital biomarkers use physiological and behavioral data to explain, influence and/or predict health-related outcomes. They are collected and measured by digital devices such as portables, wearables, implantables, or digestibles
Disease Knowledge, Diagnostics & Detection Disease knowledge, diagnostics and detection solutions provide vital ways to implement improve patient care by tackling an illness’ background, identification and further investigation
Disease Tracking & Predictive Analytics Disease tracking addresses symptoms, medication, and measurements. Predictive analytics identify trends in data and predict future behaviors
Mental & Behavioural Health Mental health refers to cognitive, behavioral, and emotional well-being while behavioral health’s wider remit includes substance use, drug use, eating habits, and physical health, as well as mental health issues
Personal genetics Personal genetics is the sequencing, analysis, and interpretation of an individual’s genome, offered directly to consumers over the web. It’s initiated directly by consumers, outside of a defined clinical context and often without the involvement of a healthcare provider, and these services sift through huge amounts of genetic information to offer a wide range of clinical, physical and behavioral uses
Remote Monitoring Remote monitoring solutions safely check patient signs at home, allowing in-person care to be reserved for the neediest cases and so reduce the burden on hospitals
Telehealth & Virtual Care Telehealth and virtual care deliver and facilitate health and health-related services, including medical care, provider and patient education, health information services, and self-care, via telecommunication and digital communication technologies
Tele-pharmacy Tele-pharmacy provides pharmaceutical care in which pharmacists and patients are not in the same place and can interact using telecommunication and digital communication technologies
Virtual Reality Virtual reality (VR) offers computer-generated simulations which can be interacted with in a seemingly physical way. It can be used in healthcare in a variety of ways, including to improve patient outcomes and medical professionals’ training
Virtual Trials Virtual trials offer new methods of conducting a clinical study to collect safety and efficacy data for a molecule or medical device. They use technology and inclusive platforms (for recruitment, informed consent, counselling, endpoint measurement and adverse reaction reporting), so patients can be home-based at every stage of a trial
