Hybrid Event: live at the ESADE premises and also available online

Since 2020, Barcelona Health Hub, Medical Association of Barcelona (CoMB), Esade BAN and Barcelona Activa, in collaboration with EIT Health, have been organizing the e-Health Investment Forum Barcelona: a unique and specific space for investment in digital health.

It has been a great success so far: 88 applications received, 19 startup pitches and more than 1.300 participants from across the globe.

Every year, calls are launched to target entrepreneurs leading disruptive projects. After receiving startup applications, an evaluation panel composed of different experts from the health and investment sector shortlist the most promising startups.

The selection process, based on the startup technology readiness level, its market opportunity and the team experience, offers investors a great quality deal flow opportunity.

This 3rd edition was focused on disruptive digital solutions for chronic diseases. More specifically: software, algorithms and digital platforms for prevention, early diagnosis, improving health outcomes and patients management and monitoring of diseases with long duration and low progression that cannot be prevented by vaccines or cured by medication. Those projects could be developed in the areas of aging, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, immunology and respiratory. The event was aimed at projects with the potential to transform how healthcare is delivered, empowering healthcare professionals, improving the patient experience and healthcare output.

Startups were selected in 2 categories: pre seed/seed (up to 1 million euros raised so far) and growth (more than 1 million euros raised so far). Investors from the Spanish/Catalan ecosystem as well as international investors actively investing in digital health were present.

The forum was held on June 15th, 2022 at 16:00 hrs CET, in the ESADE premises in Barcelona and accessible online. The event was held in English. The selected companies were able to pitch physically and online.
