The Semi-Finals

Centralised training and selection days (“The Semi-Finals”) will be held before 15 October 2018 for each of the three categories.

  • Biotech – Leuven, 24. – 26. September 2018
  • Medtech – Grenoble, 1. – 3. October 2018
  • Digital Health – Erlangen, 8. – 10. October 2018

At each Semi-Final 14 international startups  will participate. The format will be as follows:

During a two-day training and selection event, participating startups will be teamed up with mentors (i.e. experienced entrepreneurs, investors, experts in the field) to strengthen the company’s value proposition. Mentors will review and potentially optimise the company business plan and provide intensive pitch training in order to improve the startup’s ability to perform a funding roadshow in front of top-level seed or A series Investors.

At a one-day expo (immediately following the training and selection days), all participants will pitch in front of a jury and audience of market experts and investors. The top seven companies per category (21 in total) will be selected and invited to pitch in Lodz at the EIT Health Summit 2018.
