GenoKey is selected by HealthStartupEU to present at its Big Data program
From the HealthStartupEU’s website:
We’re excited to announce the (almost) final program of HealthStartup III to be held June, 26 in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. The theme of this edition is Big Data; therefore we’re focusing on startups that place data at the heart of their business model and business proposition. These can include startups that capture, monitor, aggregate, integrate, analyze or visualize health-related data for any number of purposes, including patient monitoring, medical diagnosis, medical decision support, medical research, public health monitoring, self-tracking/quantified self, fitness tools, systems integration and so on.
The startup does not need to be ‘big data’ project in the formal sense (i.e. already collecting and analysing huge amounts of data) but it should have a longer-term ‘big data’ vision of some sort. Our definition is purposely kept broad – we don’t see ‘big data’ as a distinct category of startups but as an opportunity for practically any health startup that is collecting/using data. The goal of the event is to explore that opportunity in-depth (and if you’re pitching, to evaluate and improve your big data vision).
Supporting digital health startups in Europe
The health sectors are ripe for technology-driven change. The internet and related technology trends are enabling new business models and services, they are empowering consumers-patients to take a far more proactive role in taking care of their own health, and they are improving the way healthcare is practiced and organized. We think there is tremendous potential currently to create exciting new health services and to radically improve the quality, efficiency and accessibility of healthcare. That’s why we’re supporting digital health startups in Europe.
Our goal is to create a more hospitable environment for health startups by creating connections between the burgeoning digital startups scene and the health sectors. To that end we’re organizing a series of events in various European cities, bringing together entrepreneurs, health care professionals, policy makers and investors. In support of our events we’re tracking emerging trends in digital health and developing an extensive network of healthcare experts and decision makers in Europe and further afield.
