Sanome has been listed as part of Digital Health in Europe: A Data-Driven Blog Series by Speedinvest. Building on the analysis of 600+ Digital Health startups founded in Europe in the last decade and our overview of the French, DACH, Southern Europe, Benelux and CEE digital health startup ecosystems, Sanome features as part of their systematic charting 182 the digital Health startup ecosystem in the UK region, as it stands in 2022.
“The United Kingdom is home to the largest number of digital health startups founded in Europe between 2010 and 2020. 182 companies have been founded and funded since 2010. With €3.5 billion invested into these companies, the UK ranks first in terms of total funding in Europe. It is a mature market with an average of €20 million invested per company. To put it into perspective, that number is around €8 million for the DACH region, the second most active digital health market in Europe.
Startup activity in the UK digital health space has continuously increased during the past years. The UK’s leading role in research, the unique role that the NHS plays, and the flywheel effect from the overall startup ecosystem all played a part.
The data: 182 startups that shape the Digital Health ecosystem in the UK
The aim of this blog is neither to be exhaustive nor to rank startups, but rather to chart the rapidly expanding UK digital health startup ecosystem. Check out our methodology blog for our inclusion/exclusion criteria. In a nutshell: We’re only including companies that build health-focused software, have some form of VC or angel funding and were founded in the last eleven years. We’ve used Dealroom.co, Crunchbase and our own CRM as the main data sources.” – Daria Gherghelas, SpeedInvest
