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.

AI and IoT powered personalized Digital Respiratory Therapautics service.
