HIMSS and Health 2.0 European Conference Helsinki, Finland 7-9 September 2020

Be a Changemaker #HIMSSEurope20
7-9 September, 2020 | Helsinki, Finland

Startups, turn your idea into the next success story

Meet the right audience in the right place and present your innovation during the HIMSS & Health 2.0 European Conference in Helsinki. Take the chance to inspire 3000+ healthcare stakeholders from 60+ countries and become one of the changemakers.

Incremental and seismic shifts wanted 

Some innovations have the potential to impact healthcare significantly. Sometimes they are amazing discoveries or brilliant ideas remodeling the way we work and communicate. The fact is that healthcare is facing enormous problems today that can’t be solved using the old tools. 

Patients, doctors, nurses, and health authorities are looking towards digital technologies as they introduce completely new opportunities. Regardless of whether it is digital platforms, mobile apps, wearables, or AI-based solutions, this is the right time for innovators in healthcare. All you have to do is plant your idea in a favorable ecosystem.

Bring your remarkable narrative

Economics, democracy, traditions, and breakthroughs in science – they all are built on stories. For ages, people’s behavior and motivation to change the status-quo have been driven by inspiring stories. They stimulate imagination, arouse emotions and initiate cooperation – factors enabling dreams to be turned into action. 

As little as four minutes is enough time to impress those that come to listen to you. So how will you make the best of that 240 seconds to get the participants of the HIMSS & Health 2.0 European Conference to believe in your solution? In Helsinki, we are bringing together stakeholders from the European health innovation ecosystem. Such an opportunity to present what you’ve been working on with passion, and to fix one of the healthcare problems of today happens only once a year.

Your biggest win: interest of decision-makers 

Unlike the classical startups' pitches or competitions, it is about incorporating your idea into the conference agenda. You will showcase your solution in various tracks and sessions, and as a result – become a part of the live discussion with experts representing the digital health ecosystem. Take this chance to network and gather precious feedback, but also to reach key investors, potential users, clients, journalists and people who can open up new business perspectives. One thing you can be sure of – after two days of intensive meetings, talks, business card swapping, presentations, and discussions, you will leave Helsinki equipped with valuable new contacts and business opportunities, inspirations, and up-to-date essential knowledge necessary to succeed. It is the best reward your startup has ever earned. 

Apply to demo 

It’s simple, transparent, and free-of-charge. Fill out the application and convince us to invite you to showcase your idea at the Health 2.0 track. If our team is interested in seeing a preview of your demo, you will be contacted to arrange a 30-minute virtual demo via screen-share. Remember that we receive hundreds of applications every year, so focus on the core benefits and healthcare challenges you are addressing. Keep in mind that it is about your story and how you will inspire the audience, not about technical details.

Applications are open now and will close on 1st April 2020. Good luck!
