At DO! – Ghent University – I really have found the answers. They gave a clear and thorough overview and provided the right referrals to experts. This has really helped me with my entrepreneurial story. Meanwhile, my products are available on the market, so I get to do something meaningful every day en make life easier for many patients.

DO! has guided us in the development of our business case, and thanks to BlueHealth Innovation Center, we were able to adopt this business case to the specific demands in the healthcare industry. Thanks to this trajectory, we were able to start Creative Therapy, and find the needed funding for our development.

At the early stages of EVapp, we were in need of guidance and economic expertise. We were just a group of medical students looking to make a difference for acute medicine, yet missed essential economic profiles in our group. DO! and Blue Health Innovation Center helped us immensely with one-on-one coaching, networking and transfer for subsidy accelerators. Looking back five years later, we could not have imagined our company growing so rapidly without their help.

The coaches of DO! – Ghent University – gave support and guidance in every phase, from idea to business plan. They gave me the necessary advice & expertise that helped me to take some important decisions. After this first phase, I was able to grow further to start-up, allowing me to make a real impact in the health care sector!
