This lunch lecture is different than the ones you are used to. This time it is not a big company, but a smaller, but fast growing, start-up company founded by TU/e students. They started of with 8 Computer science students, and now their headcount is over 40. Their goal is to become the leading mobile adherence solution enabling up to a billion people worldwide. They tackle the issue of medication non-adherence, which is a complicated worldwide problem with costs estimated above $500B. For instance; in the Netherlands 3M people depend on multiple medicines daily. Their product, MedApp, is an online, mobile medicine platform, The App provides smart alarms to take your medication, patient information leaflets, and price indications and way more. Are you curious how you can begin a start-up yourself? Edwin Hermkens will tell about his experiences in starting a business (possible while still studying) and how to quickly learn from your inevitable mistakes.
