Five European HealthTechs To Watch
Switzerland | Venture
MindMaze is one of the top European HealthTech startups and is known as the global leader in digital neurotherapeutics. With more than a decade of work at the intersection of neuroscience, bio-sensing, mixed reality, engineering, and artificial intelligence, MindMaze’s healthcare division claims to be addressing some of the most challenging issues in neurology, including Alzheimer disease, stroke, and Parkinson’s disease, by creating a platform for brain health and recovery, and unique digital therapeutic interventions.
Through a recent partnership with Vibra Healthcare, a leader in post-acute hospital patient care, MindMaze’s solutions will be rolled out on a large-scale to improve care across in-patient, post-acute, company sub-acute and home-based environments.
“MindMaze is committed to redefining neuro recovery across the continuum of care through the development of evidence-driven solutions for patients with serious neurological conditions.” Tej Tadi, Founder, Chairman & CEO
The Netherlands | Series B
One in five people struggle with sleep, and the odds of being sleep deprived (less than six hours a night for adults) has risen considerably over the past 30 years. Fortunately, Onera Health, an at-home medical-grade sleep diagnostic patch system, is transforming sleep medicine and helping the medical field provide the much-needed answers for millions who suffer with sleep disorders.
“For many years, comprehensive sleep diagnostics was mainly possible in in-patient laboratories that required significant resources, resulting in long waiting times and often poor patient experience. Our innovative solution enables large scale utilization of at-home polysomnography. This will not only increase patient comfort during a sleep study significantly, it will also improve access and shorten the diagnostic journeys of patients suffering from sleep disorders.” Ruben de Francisco, CEO
Finland | Venture
ŌURA is the company behind the Oura Ring – a smart ring that uses sensors to deliver real-time personalized health data, insights and daily guidance. Through its infrared technology, the Oura Ring monitors temperature and blood flow, calories burnt, and heart rate. The ring then connects to the mobile app, where all the data is handily visualized and explained.
Recently, the European HealthTech launched Oura For Business. Through this offering, organizations – specifically business corporations, healthcare, higher education, athletics, employee wellness, and the military, will be provided with data about their people, from performance optimization and fatigue, illness detection and burnout.
“By starting with sleep as the foundation of overall health, the passionate team at ŌURA has created an extraordinarily elegant solution to enable anyone to take charge of their health, all in one small, yet highly advanced ring.” Tom Hale, CEO
Germany | Series B
The European HealthTech startup Ada Health helps diagnose symptoms and offer treatment advice through its AI-enabled platform. Ada’s consumer app has handed more than 26 million assessments since launch and has earned 300,000 five-star ratings globally.
Recently, Ada was certified as a Class IIa medical device under the European Union Medical Device Regulation – a major milestone for the company and a confirmation of Ada Health’s position as a leader within the AI-based health and symptom assessment category.
“As a company, our goal is to improve healthcare outcomes for more than 1 billion people around the world. Covid-19 has highlighted the need for greater, faster change within healthcare, and we are seeing a growing demand from health systems, insurers and life sciences organizations for innovative ways to help transform health journeys and drive better outcomes for patients, clinicians and providers.” Daniel Nathran, CEO
Switzerland | Series C

As well as this, Dacadoo has a global partnership with Swiss Re, with Swiss Re offering the platform to insurers of all sizes.
