The European Health Catapult is a European wide startup competition for early stage startups working in Medtech, Biotech and Digital Health. The participating startups are looking specifically for Seed and Series A investments. The European health Catapult provides investors in early-stage life science companies with an excellent opportunity to gain access to a concentrated elite group of top European startup companies ready to take on a strong partner when they take the first step to economic value creation.

The competition is built up in several phases, the regional pre-selections, the category specific semifinals and the final at the EIT Health Summit in Lodz. The several-phase process of the competition allows a stringent quality check and preparation of startup companies in order to pitch in front of investors.
