When you’re starting a business, you need to be where the talented people are. When it comes to health, Greater Helsinki has a lot to offer: A connected ecosystem of a world-class healthcare system with research universities, hospitals and facilities, and a vibrant start-up scene.


Health Incubator Helsinki is a comprehensive incubator program for research-based, early-stage teams and start-ups operating in the health sector. The incubator, initiated by the City of Helsinki and the University of Helsinki and operating in close co-operation with Health Capital Helsinki, started operations in 2020 with a first batch of 12 brilliant start-ups under its wing.


Be part of a vibrant health community – apply by 28 February


Health Incubator Helsinki is now open for applications for the next program, starting in May 2021. The application period opens on 1 February and closes on 28 February 2021.


After the application period, interviews will be scheduled with selected candidates in March 2021. Approximately 12 teams will be accepted into the program.


If you have a business idea related to the health sector, Health Incubator Helsinki could be right for you. Most of the businesses the incubator supports are research-based.


The incubator provides the selected startups with the infrastructure and advice needed to succeed. The teams get long-term (up to three years) support including tailored mentoring and advice, invaluable networking opportunities with investors, established healthcare industry experts, innovative entrepreneurs and expert advisors, as well as office and co-working space. Apart from a minor fee for the office space, the incubator services are free for the participants. The incubator does not take any equity in the companies.
