The Regional Selection

A pre-selection amongst the applicants will be made by each region, based on a common set of criteria. Each region is free to define their individual selection process but they are encouraged to run pitch sessions, workshops or other assessments to assure that the quality of startups representing their region is outstanding in an international context.

The best regional startups in each of the categories, Medtech, Biotech and Digital Health, will be identified until 12 July 2018. In total 42 companies – 14 per category will be proceeded to the Semi-Finals.
