The happy winners of Future Health and Wellbeing growth track 2019

The second runway day of Kasvu Open’s Future Health and Wellbeing -growth track – and at the same time one of the semi-finals of the whole programme was held on Wednesday June 5th in Otaniemi Espoo, where altogether 20 companies presented their polished pitches to each other and to the dedicated growth partners. Each company also had 45-minute one-on-one sparring sessions with five different growth partners to receive feedback on e.g. their business model, pitch, growth strategies etc. One of the growth partners and jury members was Upgraded’s Director Sara Härmälä.

At the end of the day the jury chose Applicado Oy‘s Layette-application as the winner, and gave honorary mention to Joy Haptics Oy and a second honorary mention to Monidor Oy. The winner and the first runner-up will proceed to the national finale.

“The decision was not easy, since the level of the companies in the track was very high and also from very different stages and industries. The jury felt that Applicado’s Layette has enormous growth potential and is already at a stage where the demand for it is almost higher than the team can supply. The application is also based on a Finnish national treasure, our prenatal and maternal care, and the service offers a perfect solution for exporting that.” Härmälä comments.

Altogether five Upgraded member companies (Bono Health, Emooter, Heart2Save, Medigoo and MVision AI) took part in the growth track day. All track participants can still be chosen to the national finale by the national jury.
