EMERGENCE #15 – Nordic Life Science and Health Tech Startup Pitch Session

Japan and Nordics are a perfect fit in healthcare and life science. Japan is home to many large and mid-size pharma companies and a very large healthcare market whereas the Nordics are an innovation powerhouse. By linking the two together we aim at creating new Nordic-Japanese collaborations, investments and market entries.

The Nordic region is home to top class life science companies that are leaders in innovation. It also has a word class startup scene that benefits from strong industry-academia-government collaboration as well as access to substantial investments from venture capital and public markets.

We are excited to have the below 8 Nordic life science and health tech startups and growth companies pitching:

1. Briota 


AI and IoT powered personalized Digital Respiratory Therapautics service.

2. Dianox 


Uncovering health problems before they become chronic with a home saliva test kit.

3. Augmented Hearing

4. Finnadvance

6. Fepod
