Startup Creasphere

Following the success of our Startup Creasphere platform in Munich, we launched our Startup Creasphere APAC program in August 2020, together with Roche and Sanofi. We aim to create a leading health innovation platform in Asia Pacific where forward-thinking corporations and disruptive startups can meet and create meaningful engagements.

Transforming Healthcare Together
Startup Creasphere was established in 2018 by Roche and Plug and Play, and is the first Health-focused innovation program in Munich. Startup Creasphere connect startups with industry-leading corporate partners to pilot their technology, with a strong focus on co-creation between startups and corporates. Startups play a crucial role in the digitalization of the healthcare industry, and we believe that innovative HealthTech companies deserve a dedicated program to accelerate their success.
