About med-tech start-up pitch

With our unique take on a start-up pitch we want to not only offer the best start-up a well deserved prize but we also want to offer exposure to all participants to a wide array of investors. Our process is quite rigorous and unfortunately, not all that do apply will have the opportunity to pitch. We will soon be announcing the criteria for the competition taking place in 2022. In the meantime have a look at last year’s winners and participants.

Deadline 30th September.



We want to give start-ups the global stage to express themselves and showcase their product. Through our start-up pitch we want to give an opportunity for our start-ups to meet up with the relevant stakeholders. We pride ourselves in having diversity both within the start-ups that decided to submit their application to pitch as well as the judging panel. We believe in providing an equal opportunity, no matter who you are, where you come from and if this is your first start-up or your 30th.

2022 start-up profile

Akeno Health Ltd

Connecting electronic health records with real-time health vitals to predict microbiome diversity to reverse metabolic diseases


With the aid of emotion detection technology, we are creating an app that enables users to receive real-time therapy. There are two sets of users: a. Venter b. Listener Venters can use a chat feature to send voice messages to listeners. The voice notes are labeled according to the emotional levels of their voice, i.e. sad, afraid, happy etc. We believe this is important because we often misunderstand others and fail to say the right words. With the correctly detected emotion, the helpline service becomes more efficient. The venter has the option to stay anonymous. The listeners are selected based on an automated emotional intelligence assessment. The test will use the ''Befriending Model'' which has been proven to be scientific and successful to tackle depression. The listeners will guide the venters with intensive training. The various mental health exercises are based on the venter’s mental state after consulting with reputed psychologists and psychiatrists.

Five Lives

Dementia is a huge public health problem affecting around 55 million people in the world, currently the seventh leading cause of death driving societal costs of US$1.3 trillion annually. No drugs are available to reverse or prevent dementia in Europe, but lifestyle-based interventions do reduce risk by 30-50% (Livingston 2020). Hence, the opportunity to detect at-risk individuals and support them in lifestyle adjustments to prevent or delay dementia is substantial. Five Lives is aimed at Europeans aged 50-75 year-olds, particularly those with concerns about their brain health who cannot access specialist support, since they do not yet meet clinical criteria. Our objective is to empower them to take control of their personal health journey by adopting a healthier lifestyle. To do so, we have built an engaging direct to consumer digital therapeutics solution for the prevention, early detection and treatment of Central Nervous System conditions, starting with dementia.

Implandata Ophthalmic Products

Implandata is transforming glaucoma care by introducing its breakthrough EYEMATE system for remote disease monitoring and management. Glaucoma is a chronic age related and incurable eye disease and a leading cause of irreversible loss of eyesight in the world. At glaucoma patients, increased intraocular pressure is causing permanent damages to the optic nerve, which gradually leads to progressive loss of eyesight. By 2040 120 million patients will suffer glaucoma. Despite a wealth of treatment option a considerable number of patients is losing eyesight and eventually go blind, as today disease status and therapy effectiveness can be only controlled at infrequent (3-4 per year) office visits. In between office visits therapy effectiveness and adherence is completely unknown. The EYEMATE system allows disease monitoring at home under normal life conditions. Eye doctors can remotely monitor and manage the disease, as the information is provided by a digital telemedicine solution.

We make Megi. Megi is a virtual heart nurse, a clinically proven AI system that in a human/like interaction, guides every individual patient through daily life with their disease and treatment plan. She first learned about high blood pressure. Megi ensures patients measure their BP according to their individual clinical plan, supports them with difficulties and symptoms, helps them to adhere to prescribed therapy, helps them adopt healthy habits, such as nutrition and activity. We collect and analyze all patient data, and we know exactly, when the capacity of the patient stops, and they require real clinical support. And we can provide that. Megi is built on the shoulders of one of the largest cardiovascular centers in the CEE region, Magdalena Clinic, owned by founders family. Magdalena serves as a laboratory for continuous development and experimentation.

Miracle srl

Miracle srl is an IT innovative start-up company that integrates intelligent components to monitor health status and measure vital parameters through Artificial Intelligence techniques. The tools such as the electrocardiogram, that monitor the vital parameters and the health status of an individual, are invasive, require qualified personnel and don’t allow daily monitoring of health status. Consequently, it is necessary to develop novel tools that alleviate the aforementioned issues by simplifying monitoring, avoiding "unnecessary" visits and promoting a culture of prevention. The objective of the proposed solution is to detect the non-contact vital parameters of an individual, such as heart rate, respiratory rate and blood oxygen saturation. In detail, we propose a cloud-based service that relies on remote photoplethysmography techniques to detect physiological parameters without the use of contact sensors. Moreover, through the contributions of the intelligent system, the proposed solution returns an index concerning the individual's degree of cardiovascular risk.

The application consists of 4 gaming activities tailored to supporting children in different critical moments of the therapy experience, with a special focus on pediatric oncology, dentistry, and painful medical procedures such as vascular access routines. Preliminary results of ongoing clinical studies showed a 40% reduction in pain perception and a significant drop in necessary sedation rate during invasive medical procedures in young patients using TOMMI.


By using a scalable pipeline we created a Machine learning model that can be used to predict side effects in patients before they get prescribed a medication based on data from their EHR. We are specialising in reducing inequalities in healthcare and therefore targeting medication disproportionately affecting women and minorities. Of all reported side effects, 70% are reported by women and 2/3 of drugs removed from market are due to unacceptable side effects in women. On a societal scale, every year in Europe 192 000 people die due to side effects costing the EU 79 billion euros every year. Predicting these side effects from happening is prevention and treatment at it's finest placing patients at the centre.
