Swiss Healthcare Startups brings startups together with the right partner at the right time. Thus, we have built a network that comprises and benefits the entire Swiss healthcare ecosystem, including industry, healthcare providers, service providers, investors and other partners. 

We expose our member startups through the SHS Cortex, a digital directory unifying relevant information about SHS startups. With our targeted events we provide great opportunities for a relevant content exchange for our ecosystem and meaningful exposure for our startup members. And we use our extensive network for targeted connecting between our startup and institutional members.
