CELLVIE wins in the category for Health Solutions at the Falling Walls Summit

Falling Walls is a unique global hub connecting science, business and society. The purpose is to shape the future of humanity by giving a stage to impact-oriented ideas and discoveries, driven by the dedication for creating breakthroughs across borders and disciplines. As a vessel for the world-changing spirit of 1989 in and beyond Berlin, it is on a relentless pursuit to find out: Which are the next walls to fall? The Falling Walls' community is built on outstanding experiences of gathering, learning and the connection to a higher purpose by tackling the greatest challenges of this planet. It stands for the freedom of thought and scientific research, and for making ground-breaking ideas accessible to society.

As an international start-up competition, Falling Walls Venture showcases the most promising research-based initiatives from upcoming science-based entrepreneurs who are nominated by academic institutions from around the globe.

The best emerging companies, including cellvie (nominated by Matthias Hölling from Technopark Zurich Foundation) were invited to pitch their pioneering ideas and business models in front of a high-caliber jury and audience in Berlin.

Cellvie was privileged to be invited as one of Falling Walls Winners that were selected from more than 1300 submissions. Those fortunate presented astonishing innovations ranging from antibody-drug conjugates as next-generation cancer therapy (Tubulis) to quantum computing. Among this stellar competition, cellvie was selected as the Cluster Winner in Health Solutions 2022. This accomplishment reflects the relentlessness of cellvie's team in bringing about mitochondria as a therapeutic modality, and the potential this novel category of medicines holds to help patients in dear need.
