The final of the MIC Boostcamp and of the MIC Acceleration Program, organized in collaboration with software.brussels and lifetech.brussels, was held on June 16.
Boostcamp? Acceleration Program?
The MIC Boostcamp is a four months coaching program designed for starters launched in 2011 by MIC Brussels. The goal is to turn an idea into a viable project. Since last year, another program, the MIC Acceleration Program, was launched to provide coaching for start-ups that have reached a more mature phase.
For this 2015 edition, both programs were given a specific eHealth focus in order to support this growing sector in Brussels. Therefore, lifetech.brussels collaborated actively with the MIC to select and support the participating projects.
We are very proud that in both programs, our members were distinguished!
In the Boostcamp Category
14 startups enrolled at the start of the program. Among them 4 members of the cluster : Arturo, Marjore, SPACEFiT and Matrix Requirements Medical. The two latter were selected for the final.
- The Grand Prix went to Matrix Requirements, which develops a software enabling medical devices manufacturers to manage their technical documentation and thus optimizing development velocity, facilitating the certification process (CE or FDA).
- SpacefitGuru (project initiated during the startup weekend Ageing Population) won the Audience Award with their Health coach Application.
In the Acceleration Program category
8 startups competed during the program. 5 of them, members of lifetech.brussels, represented the eHealth sector in all its diversity: Zebra Academy, OUAT!, Neveo, Intuitim and FeasyMotion.
- The Grand Prix was awarded to OUAT, with their new project Hakobio, a visualization platform for complex manufacturing process configuration, with a focus on the biopharmaceutical sector.
- FeasyMotion, a spin-off of the ULB-VUB, active in serious games for rehabilitation won the Region Award;
