Selected among 600 applications from 15 Countries, these 4 startups will revolutionize health&welfare.
Digital health continues to grow steadily: global investments will exceed $7 billion in 2017.
Today, improving healthcare and the quality of life encompasses technologies such as apps, robots that respond to the user's questions in a chat session, social profiles and automatic learning programs.
 
The 4 startups begin today their 4-month acceleration program, during which they will fine-tune their projects in order to help patients live better, help doctors stay close to their patients, help health professionals provide more effective care and help companies offer integrated welfare solutions to their employees.
 
One of the main selection parameter was the possibility to include these projects in Generali Welion, Generali Italia’s new integrated welfare company that provides innovative services also through startup partnerships. Generali Italia will support each startup with a dedicated mentor throughout the entire program.
