Healthtech: Moving from technologies to solutions


For its 9th edition, the Healthtech Summit returned to Lausanne on 25 - 27 June 2018 and once again focused on showcasing the top 20 medtech and top 20 digital health companies in Europe. The 40 presenting companies, represented by their CEOs and carefully selected by our Selection Committees, had the opportunity to network with key international investors who could assist them with their global expansion plans. Furthermore, the program saw a balanced and varied succession of corporate presentations, interactive plenary sessions on opportunities related to accelerating investment as well as dedicated networking sessions, Networking Dinner and Lunch. The 2018 edition of the Healthtech Summit  focused on Medtech & Diagnostics and Digital Health.



"The exponential technological advances unfolding before our eyes have reshaped many industries. Incumbents have been under pressure by seemingly unstoppable start-ups-turned-giants, who are rewriting the rules of the game and collapsing the boundaries of established industries.  Healthcare is not immune. No one can afford to ignore the power of emerging & disruptive technologies and the fearless combination of smart thinking (hint: start ups), smart capital (hint: VC), deep pockets and a long term vision (hint: tech giants). Healthtech Summit 2018 is where those worlds meet."
