Every year, HolonIQ’s Health Intelligence Unit identifies the top 1000 Digital Health startups around the world. The global 1000 is built region by region from over 10,000 nominations, applications and screening to ensure the global cohort is diverse and to shine a light on the inspiring innovation happening all around the world.
Applications for the 2022 Global Digital Health 1000 are now open and close 31 July 2022. Each regional list will be announced at our Global Impact Summits Sep-Nov 2022. Please also check our 30 individual maps for the 2021 Global Digital Health 1000, Global EdTech 1000 and Global Climate Tech 1000.
The purpose of the Global Digital Health 1000 is to identify the most promising, young, fast-growing and innovative startups in each major region of the world. To be eligible, startups must be less than 10 years old, headquartered in the region in question, or predominantly focused on that market (e.g. > 80% revenue/customers). They must also be ‘startups’ (‘pre-exit’, i.e. not acquired, a subsidiary or listed) and not controlled by an investor group (e.g. via private equity buyout or controlling investment).
The HolonIQ Health Intelligence Unit and select market experts assess each organization based on HolonIQ’s startup scoring rubric, which in brief covers the following dimensions:
Market. The quality and relative attractiveness of the specific market category in which the company competes.
Product. The quality, uniqueness and impact of the product itself.
Team. The expertise and diversity of the leadership team.
Capital. The financial health of the company and its ability to generate or secure sufficient funding.
Momentum. Positive changes in the size, velocity and impact of the company over time.
