The rapid onset of Covid-19 and the devastating global consequences were beyond what anyone imagined. The situation placed a significant challenge to all interaction by blocking physical meetings. Everything became virtual.
For health startups the situation has presented both challenges and opportunities. It became more difficult to open new doors, create personal relations with investors and meet new clients. On the other hand, Covid-19 accelerated the digitalisation in healthcare around the world, and the demand for new digital solutions and diagnostics skyrocketed.
The value of ecosystem developers like Health Capital Helsinki has increased dramatically as the need for new virtual contacts, network building, innovation generation, startup support and market access support is higher than ever. Therefore, we at Health Capital Helsinki team feel proud to be here and are highly motivated to do our part to lift the economy and make Finnish health innovations fly.
