The global mHealth market including connected medical devices, health applications, and services, is annually growing at exponential rates of 30-35%. By 2020, the predicted market value is estimated to USD 59.15 Billion.

Still, doing mHealth business must deal with an established regime of nationally organised health insurers’ systems, regulatory compliance, patient data security issues and existing medical records from diverse sources.

The Meetup is focusing on eHealth business models. The Danish start-up community has a lot of promising products and services suited to the digitalized healthcare provision. Most health innovators in Copenhagen know about these start-ups, e.g. Aidcube (, Cope it (, Icura (, Stressgraph ( and Cortrium (

At the Meetup, some of the start-up companies are presenting their business cases. Also, we will bring in expertise from the investors and customers in healthcare. Finally, we are present opportunities for early-stage companies to get engaged in business development together with big corporates and accelerator programmes.

I. Session: Business models in healthcare

1. How to start - business models in healthcare?
First investors start asking about your business model. Who is the customer? Who is paying? Then investors ask for a business plan with projections of profits and expenses. In principle, investors want to know what no one knows about the future digitalized healthcare market.

Jacob Eric Nielsen, Cortrium, explains the challenges with investors and shows you some examples of how to make the investor happy with numbers.

2. You have wearables and app – how to build a SaaS business model?
Building a SaaS business model in healthcare is a challenge. Gytis Sakalauskas has done some investigations and will provide you with his findings.

3. Breaking through to the market with an app
Just imagine, you have a healthcare app, and suddenly medical doctors are showing their interest? How is this possible? And how can you make business?

Andreas Dam, Daman (, is telling us his story both as an app developer and as an agency for app development.

II. Session: Who can help?
