Zesty was invited to a lunch with the Minister for Digital and Economic Affairs of Austria at the Residence of the Austrian Ambassador, H.E Michael Zimmermann this week to discuss and explore opportunities for Digital Health companies in Austria.
Margarete Schramböck, the Federal Minister for Digital and Economic Affairs of the Republic of Austria outlined her vision for investment in Austria, partnerships with local companies & universities, the growing digital and healthcare market over the last 5 years.
One example of Digital Health innovation in Austria is “Health Hub Vienna”, a platform for open innovation in healthcare. Pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, private and public insurance companies, healthcare suppliers and start-ups all work together to develop new, holistic and patient-centric solutions. The acceleration program is managed by INiTS, Vienna’s high-tech incubator with an over 15-year track record of successfully developing start-ups in the life sciences.
Zesty would like to thank the Austrian Business Agency for their invitation and look forward to continuing the discussions with the Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs.
