HealthSPA activities expand to Tampere


HealthSPA activities expand to Tampere

Last Friday, the 6th of March, the HealthSPA team was brave enough to leave the capital area, and arrive to Tampere to have an inspiring SPAmatch event.

Published on: Mar 11, 2015

The program started with opening words from the organizers, followed by keynotes from cooperation partners. Mikael Rinnetmäki had the first keynote about the importance of these kinds of networks. For a little startup like Sensotrend, cooperation and networking are essential.

Next keynote speaker was Petro Soininen from Microsoft. He introduced cool technology, including Kinect, Band and Hololens, and discussed health care scenarios where they could be used.

Third up was Kari Salomaa from FinnMedi. He talked about the plans of creating a Health Village in Kauppi area in Tampere. As a part of that, FinnMedi is setting up a hub for startups working on health sector. Sounds perfect!

Networking at HealthSPA in Tampere

After the keynotes the stage was taken by several awesome startups, sharing their ideas and enthusiasm with the audience. There was also a demo area, where participants were able to meet the startups and get to know their products. New matches were made, and the atmosphere was very cozy, warm and informal.

As a Tampere-based startup, we’d be more than happy to see this kind of events in our neighborhood more often. A huge thank you goes to all of you who attended the event, and of course to HealthSPA for making it possible!

FYI, this Tampere event was not the only one outside the capital area, there are more of these to come. Stay tuned!
