Poor treatment coordination leads to delayed healing time and very high costs on the healthcare system (prolonged hospitalizations, unnecessary change of wound dressings, higher nurse time occupation and substandard pathology codification…). The startup equips hospitals and healthcare organizations with the right tools to manage complex wounds and optimize patient flow through the digitalization of wound care.

Corporate Venturing I An AI-powered innovation scouting technology (NLP)

Partnerships between large companies and startups are growing exponentially, encouraged by key drivers such as climate change, sustainability requirements, competitive pressure and the new generation entering the workplace - all this requiring a new ‘corporate thinking’.

The company has built a proprietary matching technology capable of understanding complex corporate needs and of identifying the most relevant startups worldwide matching those needs - in real time. The company works with large corporations in Europe, United States and Middle East (Total Energies, European Commission, Engie, Volvo, Rabobank, PwC, Orange, Etex, etc.), with a with a recurring and scalable pricing model.
