VEIL.AI and Migrevention are the winners of the first Health Economy Demo Day pitching contest. Health Economy Demo Day is an Estonian-Finnish showcase of health technology startups, co-organized by the Health Founders accelerator in Estonia and Health Incubator Helsinki in Finland.
Out of nine participating teams, VEIL.AI and digital headache clinic Migrevention were chosen as the winners of the pitching contest. The teams were judged by a panel of international experts, including Juha Paakkola (Health Capital Helsinki, Rocco van den Berg (Philips Ventures), Dr. Joseph Mocanu (Verge HealthTech Fund), and Riku Seppälä (Icebreaker VC). Over 80 investors, startups, and ecosystem partners listened in on the pitches.
“It was great to see how exciting and advanced health startups there are on both sides of the Gulf. Of course, it feels good to win in this kind of competition. But even more, I see this as an opportunity to support and friendly spar each other. This event also made it clear how important it is to have organizations like Health Capital Helsinki, Health Incubator Helsinki and Health Founders,” said VEIL.AI CEO Tuomo Pentikäinen.
