Health Startup Trends: US vs. Europe | Startup Health Academy Director Polina Hanin


Since 2012, Startup Health has been building a “global army of health transformers” within its accelerator program. Now, with 20% of their startups located outside of the US, they have a unique perspective on the trends shaping health startups and investment in the US vs. Europe, or other markets. Academy Director Polina Hanin works closely with the startups and gets a chance to see what technology, policies, and models are truly universal, and what needs a local context. Find out what some of the implications of universal healthcare are for startups. And, what advice she has for startups trying to break into the US market. What’s the one critical thing they often forget?
