The Start-up Slams are a great opportunity for young companies (and particularly start-ups seeking to raise a financing round) to showcase their project in front of potential partners and investors in the MedTech, Diagnostic and Digital Health sectors.

The selected candidates will have the chance to present their project and receive advice and feedback (“speed-mentoring”) from a panel of experts.

The winner(s) will be recognised as the most innovative start-up(s) in Europe in MedTech, Diagnostic or Digital Health.

MedFIT’s attendees will have access to a mix of live and on-demand content during those 3 days. This content will be available for 30 days afterwards; and they will also have the opportunity to debate with the pitchers via interactive online chats.

  • Be a start-up company or a company in creation
  • Seek for funding
  • Develop a new product/technology
  • Be registered to MedFIT
