Deloitte Startup Innovation Challenge

6 August 2016

Is your startup about to disrupt healthcare? Then make sure to compete at the Deloitte Startup Innovation Challenge on September 14! Deloitte and Singularity University organize this event in the run-up towards the Exponential Medicine Conference in San Diego.


The winning startup will receive access to world-class thought leaders, healthcare experts and opportunities for further development:


  • The winning startup will get an all-expenses paid trip to participate in Deloitte’s Innovation Lab Booth in San Diego. The winners also get the chance to compete in the MEDy Awards at the Exponential Medicine conference. ( October 8-11, 2016)
  • The winning startup will be offered the opportunity to pitch their innovation at the reunion day for the VvAA participants of Exponential Medicine trip.



The incoming wave of exponential technologies brings enormous possibilities to change and improve healthcare. Whether it’s Genomics, A.I., Robotics or other technological fields, these exponential technologies will disrupt any inertia this industry might have. We invite all Dutch innovative healthcare startups to take part in the Startup Innovation Challenge, enhance their innovations and progress the health of people in our world.
