CAIT-UPM provides acceleration services to European start-ups in the EIT Health Product/Market Fit Program

The Center for Support for Technological Innovation (CAIT-UPM) together with the LifeSTech group of the UPM are responsible for implementing the European EIT Health Product / Market Fit Program in Spain in 2017. This program aims to enable European start-ups in Digital Health to first approach national markets in Europe: Spain, United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and France.

After a demanding selection procedure, doDOC and Pridiktiv, two promising startups from Portugal and Belgium respectively, were selected to participate in this program and they are currently receiving mentoring services, market access, sales communications, legal knowledge, costumer development, etc. in order to bring its solution closer to the Spanish health market. 

doDOC helps global enterprises to do more business and make better decisions by unlocking the power of information. It is a collaborative information authoring and management platform, and it is the solution to complexities and inefficiencies in planning, drafting, editing, reviewing, and approving complex professional documents within your organization to leverage the true power of data as a decision-making tool. doDOC creates high value by streamlining document workflows, leading to faster drafting, review and approval, instant perfect formatting, and transparent project management lifecycle.

Pridiktiv wants to bring back the human approach to healthcare with the help of technology. It is a smart and mobile health collaboration platform that gathers data from connected healthcare devices. This data is then translated to user-friendly and actionable reports and analytics that can be used by healthcare professionals. This one-stop-shop makes patient management a whole lot easier compared to what’s out there today.

Different top experts collaborate with the CAIT team in the execution of this program and giving a strong imputs to these two promising start-ups in order to introduce their product in the most efficient way in the Spanish health market. They are:
