For those not familiar with the EIT Health Catapult program, the event is sort of the Oscars Ceremony of the European Healthcare Startups. We are tremendously honoured to have won the 1st Prize of the Medtech category. This is a recognition to the potential impact of the company as well as to the robustness and attractiveness of the business plan we are executing. Special thanks to the jury members (see below) who put us on the top of the list of amazing startups and for the feedback we have received in the finals and after the contest.

We are particularly happy to become winners, but also to acknowledge Barcelona’s MeThinks AI was the winner of the Digital category and that three other Spanish startups reached the finals: Goodgut (Biotech) – Girona, Aortyx (Medtech) – Barcelona, and Spotlab (Digital) – Madrid. Five out of the 21 companies (almost 25%) chosen to be part of the most reputed European startups contest. Four of them based in Catalonia and consolidating the region as a European pole for high-impact highly innovative companies, some of them already in the market.
