EC2VC Investment Forum and Pitch Competition

Digital health start-ups and investors – buckle up.

EC2VC is the place to be!

The 13th edition of EC2VC Investors Forum and Pitch Competition will take place as part of the Radical Health Festival Helsinki 2023 on June 12th at the Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre.

The Investment Forum (Rooms 204 & 205)


Gathering the most active investors in digital health around Europe and beyond, EC2VC starts with an Investment Forum and panel discussions focusing on questions we usually prefer to discuss behind closed doors: how the current financial situation is impacting digital health investments and creating tensions between startups and their investors, what to do with ¨ghost¨ board members, what can be done with failed start-ups’ IPs, how to prevent down rounds, or how to negotiate the solutions´ integration with existing EHRs.

Investors already confirmed to take part in these radical discussions include Almaral, Evidenced Capital, Innovestor Life Science, Longliv Ventures, Mount Sinai Ventures, Nina Capital, Superhero Capital, Tesi or VITA.

¨After many years of consistent climb in the annual amounts invested in digital health, the landscape has dramatically changed over the past few months. We need to seriously question this new state of play and what it means for the future of the industry. The Radical Health Festival is creating a space where we can go beyond the usual politically correct discussions about digital health investments. I´m looking forward to these honest hard talks!¨
