HealthSPA is now Upgraded

Health Startup Association of Finland

We have changed our name! Read more.

Upgraded is a non-profit association for health & wellbeing startups in Finland.

Our goal is to make sure that startup innovations have an established role in the society as a source of health and wellbeing solutions. We help startups stand out by making their solutions visible and finding the right connections. No good health innovation should be lost due to the lack of knowledge about it.

We are in the business of building bridges. Startups are a part of a bigger puzzle, and we want to build the bridges between the different pieces of startups, corporates, public sector & universities. The industry thrives on cooperation and everyone will reach their goals quicker when working together.

We are also the organisers of the premier startup-driven health innovation event in the Nordics – Upgraded Life Festival. The fifth event will take place on 31st May – 1st June, 2018.

Upgraded Life Festival 31.5. - 1.6.2018

The premier startup-driven health innovation event in the Nordics. Here the rising stars of healthtech meet more established innovators across the industry. Make sure to reserve your spot.
