Initial Selection Process
This year’s competition features Digital Health startups from around the world. To be included in our opening line-up, the qualifying startups must be:
- Currently in Seed, Pre-A or Series A funding stage
- A Digital Health startup as defined by our Digital Health taxonomy.
- Listed on HealthTech Alpha, the world’s leading private market platform for Digital Health.
We then apply our proprietary HealthTech Alpha Score (or Maturity Index)* to identify 64 of the highest scoring startups. These algorithms analyse a startup’s key metrics in the last 12 months, including partnerships built, clinical trials, regulatory approvals, funding performance, market traction and more.
*The Alpha Score or Maturity Index is a composite score based on four Alpha indices: Momentum, Market, Innovation and Money. The Alpha score enables comparison ranking and a 3D assessment of each startup.
