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.  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 the premier startup-driven health innovation event in the Nordics – Upgraded Life Festival
