Joint Healthcare Start-up Bootcamp in Cluj, Romania

4th August 2018

Training for start-ups who want to apply to national and international programmes

EIT Health InnoStars co-organised the first Bootcamp in Romania dedicated to healthcare start-ups on 12-13 July 2018 in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, in cooperation with FreshBlood, Medical University of Cluj-Napoca, ASAIH, and EIT Health InnoStars.

Participants were start-up representatives who have been through a hackathon or have a minimum viable product and who wish to understand their market, their products and the value offered to the clients – while also looking to apply to national and international programmes.

The agenda included workshops on:

  • Healthcare innovation, held by Dr. Vlad MATEITA and Stud. Maria CRISAN LUP – Starship Innovation Fellows;
  • An ASAIH session, held by stud. Lorand MAGDO;
  • Pitching Preparation, held by Mircea VADAN from ClujStartups;
  • Healthcare Stars-Ups in Romania – the international perspective, held by Special Guests Sveatoslav VEACESLAV & Dumitru PETREUS from Wello, Flavia OPREA from ENTy, Dr. Alexandru Herdea from Children Hospital, and Grigore Alexandrescu;
  • Value in healthcare – the tough choices, held by Dr. Ion-Gheorghe PETROVAI; and
  • Opportunities and preparation, held by Adam SEBESTYEN from EIT Health InnoStars

To wrap up the bootcamp, a public pitching session was organised, where the best three start-ups received prizes from our partners.

This first Healthcare Start-up Bootcamp had a clear, significant impact on those start-ups who participated, providing them with good networking opportunities and access to valuable know-how and feedback.
