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 Paris in December 2019. 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/industry representatives.

Investors are actively invited to join the 3rd day of the EHC Semifinals in September- October 2019. Investors  are encouraged to connect to the Investors Network, an EIT Health Accelerator program which gives the opportunity, according to the properties of the investor’s portfolio, to screen and select high potential start-ups as well as young start-ups, willing to access European funds. Besides, we also want to highlight powered by EIT Health, the first pan-European equity crowdfunding platform for European healthcare companies. Investors can join to be part of the crowd.
