SCALEit Health 2013

We are currently recruiting Digital Health startups for our SCALEit Health programme which takes place from September 23-27, 2013. The goal of our proven one week SCALEit model is to optimize the growth potential of each participating company by exposing them to the unique ecosystem of Silicon Valley and the significant market opportunities in the US.

Why should a Danish digital health startup come to Silicon Valley?

Today, entrepreneurs with deep technology skills are combining forces with innovators in the medicine space, resulting in a new digital health ecosystem emerging in Silicon Valley.

Techcrunch’s Sarah Lacy nailed it when she wrote: “This isn’t your parent’s healthcare IT movement.” The health industry is under pressure to adapt to the digital age. A new generation of health startups are embracing the mobile and consumer web opportunity to create new generation of products and solution for today’s consumers and enterprises. Through scalable, modern technology they have begun bringing disruption to a stodgy industry. We find ourselves at the early days of a paradigm shift and the digital health market opportunity is huge. Silicon Valley once again finds itself as ground zero for a sweeping technology driven change in an entrenched industry.

We see 4 vital elements make up the unique opportunity in the digital health space:

  • Investors are excited and looking to invest.
  • Incubators are looking for fresh startups.
  • Startups wants to partner with other startups with world changing ideas.
  • The established market players want to run pilot project.


The nordics are in demand in Silicon Valley

Danish entrepreneurs have a great track record of success in the valley. Zendesk, Tradeshift, Podio and the list goes on. SCALEit is your chance to start down a path which could lead to adding your company’s name to this exclusive list of entrepreneurs.

On the SCALEit team we have a hypothesis that Denmark is uniquely conducive to digital health startups. The Danish healthcare system is world renowned and the Danes make savvy consumers quick to embrace new opportunities. We think that enabling Denmark’s best and brightest digital health entrepreneurs to take advantage of the Silicon Valley’s ecosystem is a recipe for success.
