Heuristik Takes Its Technology to Taiwan After Securing €750,000

Throughout 2023-2024, Heuristik has the objective of opening a financing round of €5 million, which will allow the Spanish company to continue growing in the European market and complete the necessary requirements to enter the US market. The company has already held talks with a Boston hospital to test its pilot there and plans to enter the country in 2024.



Heuristik launches in Asia. The Spanish biometrics company for the health sector will implement its patient identification and management technology combining fingerprinting with artificial intelligence (AI) in Taiwan. Heuristik will carry out a pilot test in hospitals throughout the country, according to Antxon Caballero, the company’s CEO.

The company has a financing round open with which it expects to attract €1.3 million. At the moment, €750,000 have been secured by Spanish and European investors, an amount that could be closed in the coming months.

With the investment, the group plans to continue increasing its international expansion. In 2023, the company increased its presence in Spain and confirmed its arrival in Portugal and Poland. Now, Heuristik takes the first step to expand across the Asian continent, while also continuing to look at the United States. 

The landing in Taiwan comes after being selected by the accelerator BeAccelerator, which has $150 million to invest in its portfolio of companies. Heuristik has been the only Spanish company in the entity’s selection.

Throughout 2023-2024, Heuristik has the objective of opening a financing round of €5 million, which will allow the Spanish company to continue growing in the European market and complete the necessary requirements to enter the US market. The company has already held talks with a Boston hospital, whose name has not been released, to test its pilot there, and plans to enter the country in 2024.

The start-up has developed software that combines fingerprint recognition with artificial intelligence. This solution helps health entities with the identification of patients throughout the patient journey, providing real-time statistics that help lighten waiting lists.

With this tool, the company intends to speed up the identification of patients in situations of medical emergencies, post-operatives, and health centers. This encompasses any situation where users are unconscious, without documentation, or suffer from a communication problem, such as Alzheimer’s or deafness.

The company aims to open a financing round of €5 million between 2023 and 2024

In the last month, the company has also completed a new pilot project at the San Cecilio Hospital in Granada, with the aim of applying its technology to dialysis in chronic patients at the hospital and day centers.

The group is now closing some thirty tests distributed in Europe, Asia, and America. Likewise, it is preparing to opt for the EIC Accelerator at the end of the year and thus achieve implementation of its solution in six European countries. Recently, the company obtained the Vithas award, which is supported by the accelerator Acex Healthcare.

Currently, Heuristik, based in Bilbao, has sixteen workers spread across different cities in Spain, including Barcelona, ​​Galicia, Malaga, Madrid, Valladolid, and Bilbao.
