Start-up Ideas Competition 2020

The startup competition, one of our main events each year and fittingly renamed

“Reinventing Healthcare” was held between 22th of October and 12th

of December in an online format.


In the first part, Dr Zaki Milhem held a couple of workshops on design thinking

and medical entrepreneurship. All the participants who went to the second part

had to organize themselves into teams, come up with a business idea and write

a project that was evaluated by an international jury.

Finally, the first 5 teams got enrolled in a 2 week mentorship program and

pitched their idea live in front of an audience of experts.

    Mission Admission

    Mission Admission (MSS-Ad) is a project designed by a team of medical students with one goal in mind, to help pupils aspiring towards a career in healthcare reach their goals. Our team is working on developing an e-learning platform, with all the necessary information structured in an interactive and intuitive manner.


    We experienced first hand how online courses and self-education have shaped our generation and therefore want to bring an alternative to the traditional way of studying.

    ID Medic

    They say knowledge is power, and there is no situation where that is more apparent than in medical emergencies, where the paramedics have little to go on when having to treat the patient. ID Medic aims to do exactly that: to provide the emergency medical teams with accurate and up to date information about the background of the patient and his preexisting pathologies.


    By incorporating said information into the diagnostic and therapeutic process of the paramedics, we thus hope to improve the quality and reduce the delay of the treatment, which in turn could save a life.

    Xcite is an ambitious project created by an interdisciplinary team of medical and technical students, with the purpose of introducing the concept of neurostimulation to the masses. Xcite is a device with cognitive-enhancing effects, based on neurostimulation technology already recognised by the scientific community. 

    We envisioned this device in the form of a multipurpose customised cognitive tool. This means you can pick, track and control (via a mobile app) the process of stimulating different cognitive skills

    We hope to be able to bring this idea to the people, for it can act as a catalyst to an improved behavioural change of lifestyle.
