Nordic HealthTech Talents program rules

1. For Students, Staff and Graduates

All teams must have at least one person who is a student, faculty member, or recent graduate (within the last calendar year) from one of the universities from Nordic countries at the time of submission.

Full-time foreign students and diploma students are also welcome to apply as long as they otherwise comply with the rules.

2. It must be your own idea

Participants should possess the intellectual rights to their idea and it must not be considered “stolen”. Scientists from public institutions must pay attention to Law 347.

If your university owns the patent or the research your idea is based on, you need to explain in your plan how you will handle this situation. For instance, has the university agreed to let you exploit their patent in this way? Are they willing to sell you the patent?

3. Residency in Nordic countries

All teams must have at least one person who is a permanent resident of one of the Nordic countries. This includes residents on temporary student visas.

4. Maximum length

Submissions must be in PDF file format, no more than 10 pages, and clearly stating your startup idea in the file name.

  • A4 page (210 x 297 mm)
  • Right/left margin: 2.5cm
  • Top/bottom margin: 2.0cm
  • Line spacing 1.5
  • Recommended typefaces: Times New Roman, Helvetica, or Courier in font size 12

5. We have all signed NDAs

Members of the jury, mentors, and Venture Cup staff have all signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). If you are still worried about the protection of your idea, then use general terms and avoid discussing the specific technical parts that can be patented, while still being able to convince others that your idea is good.

6. Language

The business plan should be written in English. This will make it easier to get advice and assistance from international experts, business people, and investors.

7. All participants must provide…

… information on their development during and after the program when requested by Venture Cup. Examples of this include submitting surveys, testimonials, interviews and being part of our alumni network.

8. Venture Cup decides when in doubt

In case of doubt, the Venture Cup Denmark management team makes the final decision in regards to any of the above rules.

9. Terms and Conditions

Any personal data relating to you gathered by Venture Cup Denmark in the registration process and during the program will be recorded internally, but not shared with any third parties. This will be in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
