Every year, EIT Health Wild Card builds two new ventures that break new ground, push boundaries and troubleshoot some of European healthcare’s greatest challenges. EIT Health Wildcard attracts the brightest talent, mentor founders-to-be and invest up to EUR 2 million in the two most promising ventures.
Launched in 2017, Wild Card is backed by EIT Health – one of the largest healthcare networks in the world, counting 150 world-leading organisations as partners and supported by the European Union.
Advancing women’s healthcare and harnessing digital therapeutics
For the 2020 Wild Card Programme Call for Applications, the challenges are:
- Women's health: How to improve prediction, diagnosis and treatment to advance women's health outcomes?
- Digital Therapeutics: How to harness the power of digital solutions to prevent, manage and treat medical conditions or disease?
You may be working on a solution already, have a game-changing idea or simply possess unique expertise needed to create a transformative start-up.
Through the Wild Card Programme, EIT Health brings together top talent with the right resources and creates life sciences companies which hold the potential to transform healthcare. Through training and mentoring, access to the biggest healthcare innovation network and up to EUR 2 million in non-dilutive funding, teams selected to become Wild Card ventures benefit from unique opportunities for an early-stage start-up.
The Wild Card Programme is a call to action for Europe’s innovators and we are looking for the brightest minds to help solve some of our most pressing health challenges. Our hope is that we are really on our way to find the next breakthroughs in medical sciences.
