Our story
health
tech
without
boundaries
The world is facing a turning point in health. The need for big ticket change has never been more critical. To change the trajectory of our common healthcare future, we need to work together smarter and more effectively across our areas of expertise. In a region with high digital maturity - where people are not afraid to try new things and with our unique citizen health data at the ready - we can pioneer the healthcare the world so desperately needs. We believe it is our duty to act.

A global network of curious minds

To achieve global health, we need to adopt a global mindset. We need to reach out, learn from and inspire one another. Our ecosystem has a global reach and we are building an international community to tackle the challenges of our connected world, leaving no one behind.

Trust builds bridges

We believe the potential for designing the future of healthcare is built into the Nordic culture. An essential part of how we achieve our goals is our ability to trust one another. We work with startups, businesses and governments to fast-track new solutions that reach far beyond the borders of our region. We do it by changing professional barriers into trusted relationships, thus making adoption of health tech possible at scale.

A legacy of trailblazing care

Building on the comprehensive healthcare systems of the Nordic region, our hub is a natural extension from old to new. We work to support and connect decades of healthcare wisdom with emerging new development opportunities, expanding the possibilities therein. By applying new technology solutions to the challenges faced by healthcare systems, we help enable better health and more efficient healthcare for everyone.
