The Start-Up Market

CPHI launches Start-Up Market for 2023

Why visit the Start-Up Market?

Globally, there are 1400 active pharmaceutical Start-Ups as of 2020, each contributing to an overall healthcare market value of $41 billion.


The dynamic nature of the healthcare industry, coupled with advancements in technology, has created massive opportunities for innovation. 


Start-Ups are known for their ability to innovate rapidly and respond to market needs with agility. In the pharmaceutical industry, where effective internal R&D spend has reduced in recent years, Start-Ups offer an important source of external innovation. They often leverage emerging technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Blockchain, to optimise processes, improve efficiency, and enhance patient outcomes.


From 24th-26th October 2023, CPHI will be hosting a Start-Up Market in Hall 3 of the FIRA, Barcelona. Bringing together Start-Ups, Innovators, and small enterprises from across the Pharma landscape to exhibit their exciting new products and solutions.
