There are several benefits for a company when Startupbootcamp accepts it. For any company that dreams of launching in Europe, Berlin is the perfect place to be. The most obvious one is that when we have made it in Berlin, we can make it anywhere in the world, given the German love for regulations & technology.
That is why we are opening an office in Berlin at the end of the next 3 months. Therefore, it means that all our team will live in Berlin for 3 months and after the program, working hard with Startupbootcamp Digital Health team and mentors.
Berlin has proven itself as the ultimate playground for healthcare innovation and boasts 35 large research institutes and universities focusing on life sciences, including internationally renowned institutions.
Here you find Europe’s largest university clinic, Charité, the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine, the Deutsches Herzzentrum Berlin (German Heart Centre Berlin) and other institutes of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft and Max Planck Society, as well as the Helmholtz and Leibniz Associations.
