Want to change the business of health and wellness?

HealthSPA is a non-profit association for health startups, with a bold goal to put Finland on the world map when it comes to health. We are also the organisers of the Nordic’s largest health startup event – Upgraded Life Festival. The fourth event will take place on April 25-26th, 2017.

The industry thrives on cooperation and we create events and projects to enable matchmaking especially between startups, corporates, public sector and universities.

Everyone will reach their goals quicker when we work together.
