We asked a number of global pharma and healthcare stakeholders to come up with a challenge – a problem or opportunity that exists within their daily business where a HealthTech solution would have a positive impact. They are looking for new HealthTech solutions and stakeholders interested in applying themselves to some of the challenges within the world of pharma and healthcare. Maybe you have an idea how to solve one of these challenges? In that case, you are very welcome to apply to pitch. You’ll find more information about what to include in your pitch application in the description of the HealthTech challenges indicated in the programme below.

The deadline to apply to pitch is now closed, but we are accepting additional pitch applications on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Sarah Lidé if you are interested to apply.
