Data 4 Healthy Recovery Accelerator Demo Day

The grand finale for the 12 teams supporting smart health innovation in Europe.

After our successful 48 hours long hacking marathon last June, 12 teams were chosen and offered to enter an intensive 3-month long Acceleration Programme, full of interesting workshops, one-on-one coaching sessions with industry experts and technical mentors, and a unique chance to develop initial prototypes into a working product or service.


Since late June, our projects are greatly profiting from the Accelerator programme which apart from mentoring, includes three high-intensity training sprints. Would you like to find out more about the experience? Hear it from our participants:


"Through Data 4 Healthy Recovery, we realised how important it is to have a niche product that scales to multiple customers. We realised that by properly identifying customer problems, our product has a better chance of success. Product focus is extremely important not only to accelerate our development, but also to communicate and realise the vision with our international team. "

Thiago Sampaio, Team leader at Cell Culture Simulator


 “We have been working in our solution since Dec 2020 and the Data 4 Healthy Recovery Accelerator has been instrumental in developing our Value Proposition and Business model. With the great support and help from our mentors we are proud to say that we now have a clear ambition and a plan on how to achieve it.” 

Slavomir Semov, CEO at Healthatics


"The main value we received from Data 4 Healthy Recovery is to understand the importance of not developing your project in isolation, but going out there and testing your assumptions early, to be able to create a solution that truly adds value

Paula Petcu, Healthy Mind Tech team lead.


On 22 September, we will host its final event: the 'Demo Day', where the teams will get a chance to present their solution to investors and industry experts.

What to expect during Demo Day?

  • Exciting pitches from the participating teams in front of the jury
  • An after-pitch interview with an inspiring and successful start-up/smart health expert
  • An awards ceremony, with nominations for the best teams in different categories
