GreenTech | Generating a positive social and environmental impact by extending the life of smartphones and tablets.
Thanks to a social action during the 1st lockdown in Belgium and having identified the “digital reconnection” as a key lever of our modern society, the company decided to integrate the mission of reduction of the digital divide as a pillar of its business model. The company is active on the market of second-hand smartphones & tablets with a new circular approach focus on integrating the value chain locally, hence lowering procurement cost by collecting second-hand devices at the local level instead of relying on existing supplier operating at global level. This enables it as well to offer a sustainable alternative (traceability, lower CO2 emission, strong positive social impact) to B2C and B2B smartphone & tablet users willing to resell their device to a reliable actor. In short, the startup offers the most responsible solution for company mainly (or individual) that have an unused device or that want to get rid of it in good conscience. 
First B2B partnerships for supply are concluded. Companies from BEL20 trust them already | Next step: push forward on B2B partnership acquisitions and develop operations (smartphone treatment) according to volume | 300k€ sought.

MedTech | Eye disease screening with artificial intelligence and robotics

40% of the population is at risk of blindness if they don’t see an ophthalmologist every year. All the diabetics are at risk of diabetic retinopathy and all citizens over 50 are at risk of glaucoma. Only 50% of the glaucoma are currently not diagnosed. Both diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma lead to blindness but can be treated if diagnosed early. The company will transform eye disease screening with artificial intelligence and robotics. Eye screening can be done using a retinal picture, AI has proven to be more performant than a human to diagnose eye disease from retinal images. Unfortunately cameras to take retinal pictures are expansive and need to be operated by a person which make their availability low for the population. Access to an ophthalmologist is not easy and there are long waiting lists. Using robotics the company will allow patients to take themselves pictures of their retina and get a diagnostic within seconds with the AI.
Strong human capital, Academia & industry partnership, Extensive network and credibility, Clinical trial in 3 Belgian hospitals | Next Step: Product ready and market entry | 3M€ sought
