Start-up Park at Medica 2019

Young and digitally driven inventors

More dynamic, more digital, and more networked – the medical industry is striding into the future. Thus, it’s wise to keep a finger on the pulse, be informed and deepen communications with specialists.

At Medica, the presence of start-ups has grown annually, largely due to the special attention they receive. This year, 36 out of several hundred of these mostly young and digitally-driven firms can be visited in the Medica Start-up Park (Hall 13, Stand 13 D56-F56). There, they present expertise and exciting ideas – involving the Internet of Things (IoT), smart solutions, artificial intelligence, the exciting virtual and augmented reality, and wearable solutions, lab-on-skin technology and biomarker analysis. 

Those pioneering innovations include live presentations in the Medica Disrupt programme, held within the Medica Connected Healthcare Forum (same hall). 

For the ‘11th Innovation World Cup’ for the best healthcare solution, blocks of 10 finalists will be announced. Day one of Medica will see a focus on healthcare IoT solutions. On the second day, the aim is to select the world’s best health app. On 18-19 November, the finalists will be on stage to receive international recognition and their cash awards. 

The Hall also provides a meeting place to ensure contact can be made between healthcare industrialists and these young companies. In addition, ‘accelerator programs’ have been organised so that companies such as Merck, Bayer and Roche can introduce themselves to the start-ups. Additionally, for biotech diagnostics start-ups, an investors’ gathering has been arranged at the nearby Maritim Hotel.
