Health Tech Nordic
– International Scaling of Nordic Startups

Shortening the Time to, and Accelerating the Speed of International Expansion

International entrepreneurship research suggests that time, temporality and speed are central determinant of the sustained performance of the firm. Currently we are witnessing a development where various temporal constructs are developed to advance our understanding of the antecedents to, and consequences of a short time elapsed between the inception of the firm and its first international sales as well as its continued speed of internationalisation.

In this panel we welcome representatives from HealthTech Nordic aiming to shortening international start up processes as well as accelerating the internationalisation speed of start-ups in the health tech industry. Of particular interest to the McGill community is that the start-ups supported by HealthTech Nordic are forerunners of a digitalized health tech industry. Thus, most of these firms are creating international opportunities.

Representatives of HealthTech Nordic are eager to engage in discussions with the McGill community and they will share experiences regarding challenges met in the start-up and international expansion process of their partners.
