Welcome to the Novartis Biome
The Novartis Biome is a digital innovation lab powered by Novartis. It aims to empower and engender health tech companies and people passionate about disrupting healthcare through the use of data and digital technologies.
Boosting the Digital Ecosystem
First and foremost, the Novartis Biome is being built for entrepreneurs with a shared passion to innovate healthcare by solving real-world problems. It is intended to open up access to key Novartis resources, including relevant datasets, mentorship and customized curriculums.
The Novartis Biome is also for the digital ecosystem at large – incubators and accelerators, venture capital, industry partners, data providers and more. Working together, we’ll seek to reimagine ways to improve and extend patients’ lives by leveraging data and digital technologies.
HealthX World Series Challenges
Our newly-kicked off series of global, open innovation challenges seeks to partner with the digital health ecosystem and people passionate about disrupting healthcare to help find creative new solutions to important healthcare problems using data and digital technologies.
Sponsored by Novartis’ Chief Digital Officer, the Novartis Biome powers the HealthX World Series which launched at TechCrunch Disrupt SF in September 2018. We’re planning to host several global open innovation challenges a year. Challenges may include hackathons, virtual challenges, pitch competitions and more.
