One of the main goals of the report is to help startups and other entities - investors, medical entities, partners, and end customers - to cooperate. This year's edition will be distinguished by in-depth research statistics, taking into account a startup's current needs, information about the solution and its organization, problems, team, financing and international expansion. It will be published in both Polish and English.
Despite the information gap on the medical market, it is extremely positive that nearly 70% of startups create their solutions in cooperation with hospitals. The openness of hospitals to innovations and cooperation with young companies will certainly influence the speed of adoption of solutions in the healthcare sector and the level of market readiness of solutions presented by Polish startups, which are already characterized by a high level of development. In 2021, 90% of them had a marketable product at the level of at least MVP (Minimum Viable Product), with more than half of the respondents already offering their product commercially on the market. Just over 60 startups announced plans to internationalize their product. A very positive factor was the fact that as many as 1/3 of the surveyed were already active on foreign markets, i.e. through signed letters of intent, signed commercial contracts, or registered revenue. This indicates that Polish startups are aware that the domestic market is too small or difficult to access in order to achieve significant success.
