GET project supports 400+ SMEs and startups
During 2 years 400+ eHealth SMEs have received support on private funding, internationalization,business
modelling and identification of new opportunities
The European GET project, funded by the European Commission has supported over 400 SMEs and startups by delivering four high value services. Throughout the 24 months the project has trained,
guided and coached Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to develop a successful business model, access private funding and/or set up an international business. Also, in cooperation with end-users
and health providers, the project has supported the identification of unmet needs that can become business opportunities.
“eHealth SMEs need ongoing and in-depth support to succeed”
According to project leader Jorge Gonzalez, “eHealth is a relatively young field with numerous business challenges for entrepreneurs and start-ups, including
business modelling, internationalization and access to private funding. The GET project has delivered coaching, resources and other types of support to help eHealth SMEs succeed in the European
markets and abroad."
Sarah Lopez, founder of the C2C Oncology project and one of the start-up participants declared “Without the support of the GET project I will have never
believed in my idea or found the strength to present it at a contest being alone. The advice I was given was very helpful.”
The CEO of OvulaRing/VivensoMedical, another start-up participant, added: “The pitch rehearsal from Get Funded was quite impressive and useful straight to the
point. The critical reflections and the recommendations given by Pascal Lardier improved the presentation quite well and gave us the possibility to focus the content for the presentation in
adoption towards the audience.”
Valuable guides and reports for digital health startups
Over the last 24 months, the project has generated a rich repository of online resources including many useful guides, interviews and reports. Among the most
interesting results are the list of 250+ global digital health investors, guides to successful business modelling and the many ‘’lessons learnt” for SMEs looking for funding or to access new
international markets. The repository is free to access and can be found on the GET project website. It will remain available even after the project at www.get-ehealth.eu.
