About DayOne and the DayOne Tech accelerator

DayOne drives medical device and digital health innovation by fostering a collaborative environment for startups and scaleups in the Basel Area.

The Digital Health Nation and DayOne Health 4.0 accelerators support digital health startups, while DayOne Tech focuses on medical device ventures with a physical product.

Located in the Jura (30 minutes from Basel), DayOne Tech is a rapidly growing program for ambitious ventures.

DayOne Tech brings together a community of industry professionals, corporates, universities, hospitals, production partners as well as regulatory and IP experts to reshape the healthcare system. 

It’s driven by the philosophy that each startup needs a highly personalized environment to grow and close the gaps between idea and market access. This process involves prototyping, raising funds and scaling up.

But there is one more advantage no other accelerator can offer: the place! 

Jura, the Swiss valley of watch manufacturers, is a hot spot for medtech startups in Europe. It’s a perfect collaborative ecosystem of universities, corporations, manufacturers, startup founders, research institutes and hospitals to nurture innovation.

DayOne Tech startups with revolutionary ideas and solid business strategies

We are proud to present this year’s winners – four medtech startups on the cutting edge of healthcare, providing innovative solutions to address today’s most urgent challenges in disease prevention and treatment.

Xana is on a mission to transform the treatment of neurological diseases. Their approach is a non-invasive customized left auricular vagus nerve stimulation device. By avoiding invasive methods and customizing treatment, Xana aims to reduce the need for pharmacological agents and enhance existing treatment pathways for five different pathologies. It’s a potential game-changer in the field of neurological healthcare.

AiMorphous Health is championing an AI-blood test diagnostic device that focuses on blood clots and bleeding prevention. The potential impact of their innovation is profound, as blood clots and bleeding are critical issues in healthcare. AiMorphous Health’s technology emphasizes early prevention and intervention to reduce thrombosis – a major cause of death globally.

OncoSwab is dedicated to the early detection of lung cancer with a non-invasive medical device. Their technology is designed to identify early-stage lung cancer biomarkers in a non-invasive manner. OncoSwab aims to increase the number of patients worldwide with access to testing.

ClotX is a force to be reckoned with in thrombosis treatment. Their product is designed to optimize thrombosis care by removing the thrombus and minimizing peripheral adverse effects during the treatment process. This is a remarkable achievement, as it improves patient care and enhances the overall quality of life for those suffering from thrombosis.
