Welcome Batch #2 of Vision Health Pioneers

Welcome Batch #2 of Vision Health Pioneers

The time has come to introduce our Batch #2 teams to you!

In January 2021 we welcomed 21 young founders with 13 different nationalities into our program. Out of 140+ applicants they convinced a jury of experts and conquered the multi-stage selection process of our incubator. 17 of them had a long journey to kick-off their healthcare startup in Berlin. They came from Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, the US, Austria and other countries to join our startup hub.

We are very excited as well to tackle new sectors this year. Besides solutions in FemTech and MentalHealth we will now also support your teams to address problems in Dermatology, Pulmonology and Cardiology.

We will explore how Art and Music can be applied. We will explore how smart textiles and hardware can provide new data. We will also explore how remote care can be improved. 

Please meet our Batch #2 Startups
