Community for health & wellbeing startups and innovations!

Upgraded is a non-profit association for health & wellbeing startups and innovations in Finland, founded in 2012. We are an active community of over 40 members and dozens of partners and other friends – and we warmly welcome anyone interested in health to join us!

Our goal is to make sure that startup innovations have an established role in the society as a source of health and wellbeing solutions.  No good health innovation should be lost due to the lack of knowledge about it. We build the bridges between the different pieces of startups, corporates, public sector & universities. We believe, that the industry thrives on cooperation and everyone will reach their goals faster and easier when working together.

We are also the creators and organisers of the premier startup-driven health innovation event in the Nordics – Upgraded Life Festival

We were formerly known as HealthSPA – Read more about the renewed brand!
