It attracts the brightest talent, mentor founders-to-be and invest in the two most promising ventures. Successful applicants will start with forming their teams and problem-solving. Teams will develop their business model and pitch to secure their place in the final round. Shortlisted teams will pitch their solution to a panel of industry leaders, with two finally being selected to receive EIT Health’s support to incorporate their new companies.
The two challenge areas for 2022 are:
- Mental Health: How to improve detection, diagnosis, and treatment to fight mental disorders?
- Early detection of Cancer: How to advance early diagnosis and screening of cancer?
