Facilitating healthcare innovation and collaboration

DayOne is the Healthcare Innovation initiative managed by Basel Area Business & Innovation, the investment and promotion agency for the cantons of Basel-Stadt, Basel-Landschaft and Jura. We are supported by a special financial contribution from the canton of Basel-Stadt and also by a wide range of knowledge partners and supporting partners.
Led by a core team of volunteer industry experts, medical doctors, tech enthusiasts and researchers, DayOne serves a growing community of 2,000+ healthcare innovators throughout the Basel Area life sciences and healthcare ecosystem. We help identify and foster promising new ideas and technologies and bring them to life.

How we are shaping the future of health

At DayOne, we believe that the future of health can only evolve if advances in medical and healthcare technologies go hand in hand with innovation across the ecosystem. Today innovation primarily takes place within separate silos, where pharmaceutical companies, healthcare providers and governments have different agendas. Bringing all these areas together in a neutral setting of collaboration is the key to shaping the future of health.
