Joining French SME Aenitis as a guest of EIT Health at the meeting in Dublin
The Estonian SME Self-diagnostics was one of two particularly promising European start-ups that EIT Health chose to invite to the Medtech Strategist Forum, which unites more than 450 leading key decision-makers and investors in Dublin, Ireland during 9-11 April 2019.
SelfDiagnostics is a medtech company, headquartered in Tallinn, Estonia, that produces medical self-tests. The company’s NINAAT (Non-Instrumented Nucleic Acid Amplification) molecular diagnostics innovations, using PCR (polymerase chain reaction) technology, can be used for varying diagnostics purposes, such as pharmaceuticals, food, veterinary, agriculture, military, or cosmetics. The first product is a multi-test for sexually transmitted diseases.

SelfDiagnostics was joined by the French SME Aenitis at the investor’s forum. They were selected from a wide range of promising European start-ups by EIT Health Investor Network programme, and EIT Health funded their entrance ticket to the forum, valued at €2 000.
The Investor Network programme is an EIT Health Accelerator programme to enable international co-investments of venture capitalists, business angels networks and associations, family offices etc. to start-ups selected by EIT Health.
