Our SWISS DIGITAL HEALTH MAP continued to grow in the first quarter of 2021 and we were able to welcome 15 new startups on our map in April 2021. So, learn more about our latest digital health startup map-update in this blog post.
The first quarter of this year was again marked by further growth in our map. Compared to the previous quarterly update at the beginning of January 2021, we welcomed 15 new digital health startups to the map. In the same period, however, the map was adjusted by 4 startups, resulting in a net growth of 11 new startups on the map. These adjustments are due to new information (e.g. discontinuation of business activities, relocation of headquarters abroad, etc.) that reaches us from the community.
In addition to the general updates in our startup database, the last quarter was also characterized by intensive research work in the context of our SWISS DIGITAL HEALTH VC Map and the associated report (see our related blog post). In this context, the Health-Trends team intensively revised the startup database and asked various digital health startups for an update. In the course of this update work, other Swiss digital health startups also became aware of us and contacted us to have their logo published on our map. This explains the strong growth in this quarter. Therefore we are proud to present you the latest update for April 2021, in cooperation with many national and international supporters (click on the map picture for high resolution image):
