Know-how for Digital health entrepreneurs


 The new eHealth HUB Smart guides are available. Download them now!

The eHealth Hub Smart guides have already been published and are now available to everyone. Both guides contain useful information valid for all entrepreneurs, especially to those involved in the Digital Health sector.

After two years of activities with the eHealth Hub project, which encompassed six editions of the Lean Startup Academy and six editions of the eHealth Hub's investment readiness training and pitch events, involving more than 110 entrepreneurs from all over Europe, all the know-how from eHealth Hub has now been condensed into these two handbooks.

1) The "Business Model Design for Successful Digital Health Startups in Europe" eHealth HUB Smart Guide is specifically crafted for early-stage startups, and addresses the key issues that they face when dealing with their business model.


2) The "How to Effectively Seek Funding in the European Digital Health Sector" guide is geared towards SMEs and startups who want to raise funds to launch and scale their business.

Coaching entrepreneurs

Barthélémy Bourdon Baron Muñoz, CEO of Hajime, took part in the Lean Startup Academy in June 2018 in Bucharest. "We learnt a lot, especially about how to build the solution according to the customers' needs. We learnt, firstly, to identify the right customers, and then to understand their problems. I always remember the favourite sentence of Dario Mazzella and Andrea di Anselmo, from META Group (the two trainers that managed the lean startup Academy) – "don't talk about your solution, ask about their problem," said the entrepreneur.

Access to finance

Javier Oca, CEO of IOMED, participated in EC2VC (Investment Readiness) at Health 2.0/HIMSS in May 2018. "Thanks to eHealth HUB we made contact with investors who were very interested and have analyzed IOMED as a potential investment opportunity," he said. After the event, Javier kept in touch with some of the interested investors and three months later in July 2018 closed a round of €500,000 worth of financing.
