While Europe’s technology ecosystem is growing, there’s sometimes a view that it lags behind the U.S. for healthtech or Health 2.0, or whatever you want to call it. But that’s basically bullshit. While Europe has been a slow starter, it’s catching up very fast. There are many new EU-based healthtech companies, and a brief analysis of CrunchBase shows that while the U.K. has the most, it’s closely followed by Germany, France, the Netherlands and Spain.
At TechCrunch’s upcoming Disrupt London, 5-6 December, we will host a startup pavilion for healthtech companies. Because there are lots of very early-stage startups in healthtech and biotech, we are offering five companies in each category the chance to exhibit free of charge.
Here’s what exhibitors in the Disrupt London special pavilion for healthtech can expect:
- Two individual Disrupt tickets per company for both days of Disrupt London
- Exhibition table one day in the pavilion on Monday, 5 December
- Participation in CrunchMatch, TechCrunch’s program to match entrepreneurs with investors during Disrupt
Here’s how startups can apply:
Rules: Any early-stage company in the healthtech and biotech space may apply.
Deadline: All applications must be completed by 14 October. Winners will be notified by 19 October.
For potential sponsors out there, yes, the pavilions are available for sponsorship. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
