🎤 Startup Pitch - Pitch Guidelines

Interested in taking part in our Startup Pitch, sponsored by Novo Nordisk? 

As part of your application, we require a maximum five-slide pitch deck (.pdf format) to be uploaded to support your applications. Please note that we are unable to consider applications that do not include a pitch deck. 


What to include in your deck?

  • Your vision and mission
  • Your product or service
  • Your audience and how your product or service benefits them
  • Your business model
  • Information about your team structure (we take diversity seriously)
  • Any key facts or figures that support your business

What are we looking for?

We’re looking for innovative startups with products or services that have the potential to disrupt the health ecosystem. We will judge your startup pitch based on the criteria outlined above.


Submission acceptance

The deadline for pitch submissions is midnight 29 February 2024 (CET). If HLTH Europe is interested in moving forward with your application, a member of our content team will be in touch in April 2024.


Receiving a response

We will respond to all who apply, regardless of whether or not we’re moving forward with your application. We will respond to your application no later than April 2024.


Shortlisted startups

All shortlisted startups (finalists) will be invited to pitch live on the Startup Stage at HLTH Europe. Startups will be given 2.5 minutes to pitch their product or service and our judging panel will have 2.5 minutes to ask questions. Each startup will get a score and at the end of the pitches, the final decision is made: who will be the winner of the HLTH Europe startup competition? 


The winner will have the unique chance to pitch on the HLTH Europe main stage to the whole audience.
