Health & wellbeing startups and innovations unite!

Health & wellbeing startups and innovations unite!

Upgraded is a non-profit association for health & wellbeing startups and innovations in Finland, founded in 2012. We are an active community of over 50 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 organisers of Health100 that hosts the 100 most impactful people of the Nordic health scene and the creators of Upgraded Life Festival – the premier startup-driven health innovation event in the Nordics.

Subscribe to our monthly newsletter to stay tuned of our activities and of the health startup scene in Finland!
