Every year, DTU Science Park is hosting its Danish Tech Challenge that aims to accelerate #hardware startups who build solutions with the potential to change the world. This year, MedTechBridge member GO-Pen is a finalist.
GO-Pen has the potential to change the lives of #diabetics with its patented solution, an insulin pen. The pen is a safer, non-stigmatizing and easier alternative than syringes. See Ole K. Nielsen, CEO at GO-Pen, pitching its potential here.
"Insulin was discovered 100 years ago. 13 million people still use 100-year-old injection technology. With our solution, we can prolong lives while ensuring that everyone has access to our affordable pen." Ole K. Nielsen, CEO at GO-Pen
Ole from GO-Pen pitching at the Danish Tech Challenge. The initiative is, just as MedTech Bridge, funded by The Danish Industry Foundation that aims to create the future growth layer of trade and industry and support entrepreneurship.
"We're happy to look back on six years where far the most of the companies that have participated have survived on long term are commercially sound, have grown significantly and attracted lots of capital." Thomas Hofman-Bang, CEO, The Danish Industry Foundation
