Slush 2018 Official Side event: Moving on up – partner with public sector for growth in health

The event is full - but streaming is available. At the “Moving on up” side event at Slush, start-ups have the opportunity to come together with the health public sector and corporations to find new ways cooperate and work together. Their common goal is to accelerate innovation in the health and wellbeing – move on to the next level of bigger and better services to the benefit of us all.

Both public sector operators and large companies give concrete examples on the kinds of projects they are interested in pursuing with start-ups. More light is also shed on the possibilities of using public data in development projects.

The event is organized by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health (STM), the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) and Business Finland.

The event is invite only due to the limited capacity. Start-ups, investors and decision makers in public sector will be invited to the event. The event will be streamed.
