Health Startup: Join Upgraded!


Health Startup: Join Upgraded!

Post Updated 02/2020

Upgraded is a non-profit association for health & wellbeing startups and innovations in Finland, founded in 2012. Our goal is to make sure that startup innovations have an established role in society as a source of health and wellbeing solutions. We believe that no good health innovation should be lost due to the lack of knowledge about it!

We build bridges between the different players in the ecosystem; the startups, corporates, healthcare providers & academia. We do this by organizing networking events, providing insights of the industry and encouraging co-operation. At the moment, we are an active community of +60 startup members!


For startups & innovations with a purpose in health, we offer the Upgraded Membership!

The membership fee is 150€ for 12 months.
