The call is launched by Xartec Salut annually to select the most promising HealthTech projects to be accompanied in their way to becoming Spin-offs with a budget for this edition of 130.000€. The program will cover some key factors of new venture success, such as: legal support, mentoring, business model definition, training, coaching and capacity building for the leader, investment and so on.
