Accelerate Innovation for Healthcare

qinnovativ is an equity-for-service company specializing in the medical technology sector.

Since 2012, we have been empowering early-stage medtech startups by providing strategic business support, technical expertise, and financial investment in exchange for equity. Our comprehensive services include business development, product development, regulatory compliance, and market entry strategy.

We are dedicated to fostering innovation in healthcare by helping promising startups overcome the challenges of the medical market and bridging the critical „death valley“ phase of deep medtech development.

At qinnovativ, we integrate seamlessly into our portfolio companies, acting as a tailor-made creative engine and business accelerator. This partnership approach allows us to create innovative companies that lead to groundbreaking inventions and successful business models.


Rapid innovation, stringent regulatory requirements, and high market-entry barriers characterize the medical technology industry. Many promising startups struggle to navigate these challenges due to lacking resources and expertise.

qinnovativ addresses this gap and provides startups with the strategic guidance and technical support they need to bring their innovative solutions to market. Integrating the company resource into the portfolio companies ensures a mutually beneficial partnership that drives growth and success.

Our expertise lies in the following sectors:

Surgical Device

What would surgery be, after all, without the varied and precise instruments necessary to execute exploration, healing, and change within the body? From clamps or forceps to advanced devices such as advanced linear staplers or ultrasound scalpels, we have analyzed and created these devices and have in-depth knowledge about them.

Interventional Cardiology & Radiology

Interventional radiology is the performance of minimally invasive medical procedures with the guidance of imaging technologies and tiny tools such as different catheters. Advancements in X-ray technology enable CT scans to provide imaging alternatives to surgical procedures and less radiation to protect healthcare professionals. In addition, doctors have more information to make a precise diagnosis by implementing analytic software and artificial intelligence.

Drug Delivery

Consumer electronics and information technology are influencing more and more medical drug delivery. As a result, patients and caregivers expect easy-to-use, user-friendly and flexible drug intake solutions. For example, Auto-inhaler, Auto-injectors, and patch pumps can offer a much more intuitive and comfortable drug delivery for asthma, diabetes, or GHD.

Laboratory Equipment

By complete sequencing of the human genome, healthcare providers can prescribe the precise dosage and combination of drugs depending on the patient’s DNA and condition. In-vitro diagnostics (IVD) is quite possibly the fastest-growing sector of the diagnostic segment and opens up new emerging micro-industries. However, it requires highly specialized equipment and excellent component reliability. Are you also looking for a solution in Point-of-Care-Testing?

Medical Robotic

There is no doubt that robotics will become part of the medical and nursing activities of the future. Robotic assistance systems are rising, especially in minimally invasive surgery or cardiovascular disciplines. It does not matter if it is big or small; the robots need to learn how to assist humans and empower us to do more precise clinical tasks. But, again, big data and artificial intelligence are the keys, and fine mechatronics is the door.

Digital Healthcare

From healthcare to self-care; Today, patients have direct access to direct self-monitoring and domestic treatment technology away from health care facilities. Bluetooth enabled blood pressure monitors or wearable close-loop glucose monitoring kits represent a new way of treatment and shift therapy from the clinic to the patient ecosystem. Biosensors allow monitoring a wide range of data points, including vital signs, step counts and body posture, at a small cost. In addition, they are effortless to use and disposable form factor.

Our Service

qinnovativ offers a unique value proposition to medtech & biopharma startups. Unlike conventional consulting firms that charge high fees, we operate on an equity-for-service model, making our services accessible to early-stage companies.
