Description

VenomAid™ is a simple, affordable, and portable testing device for rapid diagnosis of snakebite victims. It provides a reliable diagnostic result within minutes of loading blood directly from the site of the bite onto the device, thereby allowing clinicians to quickly move from diagnosis to treatment. 

Workshop Reflections

For the first workshop on Personal Leadership Aleksander said:

“This workshop gave us an opportunity to look at ourselves, take a step back and reflect over what we could improve on a personal level. Here it was the individual in focus and not the business, which I believe is a good starting point for the following program, as personal development is key when creating one’s first startup”

The second workshop on Design Thinking gave some important tools to Rasmus, as he reflected:

“This workshop introduced tools to re-evaluate our business model by challenging some of the assumptions that we base our business idea on. I learned how important it is to be explicit about details (in a structured way) when trying to solve complex problems in a team.”

Aleksander was very satisfied with the Go-To-Market workshop. He said:

This workshop delivered beyond all expectations. We had an intense 2-day workshop facilitated by Nicolaj Højer Nielsen about bringing value to our business in different ways. This covered subjects such as what to be aware of when looking for distributors, identifying and narrowing down new potential customer segments and choosing your focus and finding the true value of your product for your different stakeholders. Overall, we got a great deal out of this workshop, both personally and business wise as we got a bunch of new ideas, that we can incorporate into VenomAid Diagnostics. It was planned so that all teams got a chance to attend the Medica Trade fair in Düsseldorf and therefore we got a unique opportunity to meet potential collaborators, as well as getting a chance to ask stakeholders first hand about their thoughts on our product.”

Moreover, Aleksander commented on the “Connect with Sweden” workshop,

“Getting an opportunity to observe negotiations with an investor first hand and asking questions related to an actual case provided a lot of insights into what is expected of an investor presentation. In the co-creation lab, learning about workshop planning and execution also provided us with valuable tools for the future”

We offer autonomously operating robots, which can move in arbitrary shaped water, oil and gas pipelines con- tinuously monitoring and detecting erosion and leakage. Countries lose million tones of water, gas and oil from damaged tubes and sometimes it become dangerous for human life and nature when gas or oil pipeline gets damaged. So our product can find damaged or clogged places on their early stage in practically all kinds of pipe- lines over and underground. With the use of our product the damaged sections of a pipeline can be found faster, more easily, precisely and without digging the ground.

This means that maintenance and replacement of pipe- lines will be safer and much more cheaper. Our product is a robot which can move through the pipelines and investigate it with pressure, ultrasonic, flow sensors and camera which can shoot up to 4k video and save it in his memory card or sent it to connected devic- es. This robots autonomously move in arbitrary shaped water, oil and gas pipelines with diameters ranging from 10 cm up to 300 cm.

Our company is a disease management solution. Our software gathers together all the most important information about your health like meds, nutrition, exercise, symptoms, vitals and sleep and analyses it to give you a clear picture of how your health is at any given moment.

Our main focus to start with is on patients with thyroid problems and other autoimmune diseases, but we plan to add on and expand so we can service people with all kinds of chronic illnesses. Having to live with a chronic illness is time consuming, costly and frankly, exhausting. We want to make peoples lives easier with one platform

where you gather all the data you need to keep track of to manage your condition. So the next time you see your doctor you’ll have a much set of data to show him about your progress the past few months, and eventually with integration into the healthcare system the doctor will be able to access all the information himself before your appointment and therefore make a much better diagnosis and decision regarding your treatment.

With integration you will also be able to access your own test results, schedule appointments, prescriptions and better communication with your doctor.​
