Our next event

Digital Health Day | September 27th, 2023 | Zurich

Join us as we reflect on our journey and witness how Swiss Healthcare Startups has evolved into a key player and agenda setter in the healthcare ecosystem.

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.



«Thank you VERY MUCH for the invite, the platform and the organization of this great SHS Cortex Live! I’m looking forward to hopefully meet everybody in person soon.»

— Nicolo Angerer, CEO LifeDrop & SHS Member

«All the contacts provided by SHS are very precious for our business, and I aboard any recommendations as a piece of gold.»

— Shere Ruano, CEO RhythmiaBreath & SHS Member

«We have received valuable support from SHS’ team to connect with other startups, with investors, and with advisors. And this has been delivered with a unique human touch!»

— Francesco Cecchini, CEO Gondola Medical Technologies & SHS Member

SHS gave our startup the opportunity to present our mobility device for blind and visually impaired people at the Cortex live event in April. Thanks to SHS we obtained a lot of visibility which led to great contacts, including potential investors and prospective candidates to join our advisory board.
SHS’s strength lies in being a lean and highly performing organization in support of startups in the health ecosystem. As such, it is a valuable partner and friend. Thanks for all your help and support!

— Franco Burlando, CEO Lighthouse Tech & SHS Member

SHS provides an excellent environment for our biopharma startup PRAMOMOLECULAR - to exchange ideas and experiences with other outstanding biotech founders and to get in touch with pharma, investors and others. Because if you want to achieve something in our field, you need contacts with the best!

— Merle Fuchs, CEO PRAMOMOLECULAR GmbH & SHS Member
