Nightingale has been selected as the Best Health Tech Startup at the annual Nordic Startup Awards. At an awards gala held in Copenhagen, Nightingale triumphed over finalists from Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. As a regional winner, Nightingale will participate in the Global Startup Awards in Guangzhou, China, in December.
The Best Health Tech Startup Award was given to a startup that "has shown the greatest development over the last year based on growth, innovation, and impact with a product or service that uses technology to keep people healthier and/or improve the ability to diagnose and treat illness.”
The Nordic Startup Awards assessed startups from five Nordic countries across 16 different categories. The winners were determined by a combination of an international jury and 35,000 public votes. Before making it to the Nordic final, the competing companies had won their respective national finals earlier in September. Overall, the winners were chosen from more than 2,500 nominees.
The Nordic Startup Awards is part of the Global Startup Awards, the biggest independent startup ecosystem competition with a mission to find, recognize and connect the future shapers of the digital age from all around the world. Starting in the Nordics in 2012, the Global StartUp Awards brings together amazing ideas and best talents from 5 regions and 40+ countries across the globe to celebrate entrepreneurial spirit and startups.
