HealthX – Empowering the Future of Health

Do you have an innovative idea related to healthcare, mental health, wellness, health tech, animal health, pharma, or beyond? With a renewed brand, HealthX, formerly known as Terkko Health X, invites pioneers to take their first steps in transforming the future of health. Apply by yourself or with a team – get inspired and dive deeper into the health ecosystem by meeting experts with various health and industry backgrounds. All speaker events and workshops are designated to help you master the tools and skills needed to develop your idea into a viable solution.

After officially becoming a part of the University of Helsinki’s Helsinki Incubators in 2022, HealthX has been rebranded and moved permanently to a new HealthX web page under the University of Helsinki’s website. Take a look at their web page to learn more!

HealthX is co-organised by the University of Helsinki, Terkko Health Hub, and Helsinki Think Company, and is powered by the City of Helsinki.

Note: HealthX will not be organised in 2024.
