Why Cleveland?

Welcome to join us to meet Cleveland Clinic Innovations (CCI) and Visit Cleveland Clinic Medical Innovation Summit - one of the healthcare industry's must-go-to events!

Cleveland Clinic, one of the largest and most respected hospitals in the world, is a multispecialty, academic medical center that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education. CCI, the commercialization arm of Cleveland Clinic, turns medical breakthrough inventions into patient-benefiting medical products and companies.

Meet over 2000 key opinion leaders, innovators, venture capitalist, and other C-suite executives who know that this event delivers the clearest map for innovators to push the limits of healthcare's future.

Business Finland and CCI are now partners to bring more Finnish healthcare companies and technologies to the market. Business Finland and CCI have planned a program that will focus and accelerate your growth. Join us for the visit and learn CCI's unique approach to assess, protect, build, test, and market the most promising ideas.

Business Finland will have an "Exhibitor Space" in the Exhibit Hall for networking and sharing of information with sponsors and attendees. The space will be available to delegates for the duration of the Summit.
