The finalists have been selected for 2015’s first “SevenVentures Pitch Day” (7VPD), ProSiebenSat.1’s big pitch competition for businesses. On June 10, five teams will have the opportunity to present their business idea on the main stage of the NOAH Conference in Berlin and to win a total of five million euros’ worth of TV media advertising, which will then be broadcasted on the ProSiebenSat.1 channels.

The contest, which has already been held three times in London and once in Tel Aviv, has come up with something new in Berlin: for the first time, the focus will be on a specific cluster selected from the booming growth segments of the worldwide digital industry, in this case companies from the “Health & Fitness” sector.

The finalists:

- MeeDoc (Finland)     digitally links physicians and patients, permitting location- and     time-independent communication during medical treatment. Through this     approach the company has a positive effect on the quality of medical     consultations and to contribute to improved health care throughout Europe.

mySugr (Austria) seeks to simplify everyday treatment for diabetes patients and has developed its own apps, web services, and even its own Diabetes Academy. The products are notable for their intelligent blending of design, technology, and medical expertise on diabetes.

- Runtastic (Austria): With over 120 million downloads, the Runtastic app is already one of the best-known and most popular products in the “Health & Fitness” sector. Runtastic collects health- and fitness-specific data to motivate users in their athletic performance.

- Tinnitracks (Germany) is a medical product for tinnitus treatment that has already won several awards. Brought to market by Sonormed, it gives tinnitus patients access to a new Internet-based form of therapy. Using filtering software, patients can prepare their favorite music to allow neuro-acoustic tinnitus therapy.

- Withings (France) offers numerous products and services guaranteeing users greater well-being and, over the long term, better health. Withings has an ecosystem of interrelated health tools ranging from the multifaceted activity tracker Withings Pulse Ox and the intelligent scale to a wireless blood pressure measuring device and the sleep monitor Withings Aura.

To leave the stage as a winner, participating companies will face questions from a five-member jury. The event will also be live-streamed on the Internet at www.7vpd.com at 2:30 p.m. on June 10.
