Roche Finland has partnered with Terkko Health Hub, Finland’s pre-eminent startup community and co-working space for health and life sciences. The agreement will bring Roche into the hub as an active member, bringing its expertise in healthcare as a basis for events, trainings and mentorings. These will serve with the aim of enhancing dialogue and co-creation with healthcare professionals in the ecosystem around Terkko. It will also give Roche access to an entrepreneurial community, full of new innovative ideas. 

We’re excited to begin this partnership with Terkko Health Hub. With our focus on personalised healthcare and value-based healthcare, we are actively looking out for partnerships that help us bring better outcomes to more patients.  Moreover, we feel that Terkko’s location at the heart of Helsinki’s Medical Campus in Meilahti is an exciting place to map out potential possibilities for new collaborations”, says Maturin Tchoumi, General Manager of Roche Finland. 

“We are happy to welcome Roche into our community. We believe there is a lot we can offer Roche in terms of community, entrepreneurial knowledge and an outlet for further business development. This partnership will also bring value to all the parties in Terkko, be it students, clinicians, entrepreneurs or researchers. Roche has been very active in the campus, in addition to becoming the first pharma partner of Terkko,  Roche members have already participated in our Terkko Health Accelerator, joined community get-togethers and started collaborating with in-house startups. I am looking forward to more activities and collaborations ahead”, says Rashad Ismayilzada, Head of Partnerships and Sales at Terkko Health Hub.
