HealthSPA gaining momentum: Clustering is powerful innovation fuel

SPA_logo2
When we embarked on creating Koru we selected a few themes that would underpin what we do. One of these themes is Clustering. There are big transformations around Health and Wellness industry driven by Internet and mobility. This means lots of startups emerge, solving part of the puzzle. By clustering and working together we can be much stronger. Last summer seeing that 4 of 9 startups from the Startup Sauna's Summer of Start-ups programme were in the Health and Wellness space, I decided to try to help them and bring them and other players into a health and wellness cluster; and so the idea of HealthSPA was born. With the entusiastic support of Marko Turpeinen EIT's ICT Lab Helsinki director, we arranged the first event in January. Next week on the 10th at 5PM we are holding the second event at Aalto University's Open Innovation House and the interest has been overwhelming. With the tireless effort of Sebastien Gianelli from Koru and John Sperry from Wellbring, we have over 90 people attending and more than 70 companies signed-up of which 20 will be doing demos. We even have one company selecting to launch at the event. This is really amazing. Thanks for supporting the idea of Clustering and empowering HealthSPA. Lets continue to reboot Finland together.
