Next week, I will present in Brussels the experiences we had with working with startups and SMEs in eHealth in Europe. One topic of my presentation is focussing on "Supporting Innovative European SMEs". That's where you come in and you can shout out:

What are your top 3 needs of support you want to receive to be successful? Types of investments, policy support, business, end-user engagement etc. Just give any you come up with. Add them to this thread or mail them to me: pelsmaeker@digitalezorg.nl.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Paul
Many thanks for this opportunity to voice our requirements
As a less that 6 month young start-up I would suggest that we need help/support with:
1. reducing the EU-red-tape burden in securing access to EU resources- including non-financial resources.e.g. The current FICHE reimbursement system is not cashflow empathic to a <2year old start up and in fact heightens the risk of many of us facing the death valley curve precisely because of EU-red tape
2. speedy and lean access to customers and markets.
3. speedy and lean access to potential network partners and collaborators such as in our case, health and wellbeing brands and large well-being chain (gyms, etc)
It many instances what we have access to is the University/academic research base which can tend to be all about know-what and not much about commercial know-how and know-where
Hope this helps
Best of luck
