EIT Health uses its trusted name and connections to bring together the Investor Network, a Europe-wide consortium providing promising healthcare start-ups with early-stage funding.


The EIT Health Investor Network facilitates early-stage fundraising across Europe to help good ideas conquer health markets faster. The network connects qualified companies seeking funding with a pool of selected European investors, including early-stage venture capitalists, family offices, angel networks or super angels.

Is it for me?

Are your raising a Seed or Series A round?

Are you an early stage investor interested in healthcare?

We have created a close-knit network of healthcare investors who know and trust one another, and who share the same ambition of bringing smart money to innovative European start-ups.

If you are a European registered company seeking equity from €500,000 to €10 million, or if you are seeking to invest in a qualified healthcare dealflow, join us today!

Start-ups: Why the Investor Network?

Raising funds is a time-consuming process with a low rate of success, even more so when you plan to go beyond borders. We are here to help.

After a detailed evaluation of your project and motivation, we give you valuable recommendations, and the means to connect with some of the most active early stage healthcare private and institutional investors in Europe. Our operational team is committed to highlighting you and your project, through various means, to the network and to specific investors while bringing you insight and access to the services you need. The Investor Network collaborates closely with other investment programmes within EIT Health such as the Crowdfunding Platform.
