Reboocon Bionics wins start-up pitch contest!


Hilversum, 15 February 2019

Reboocon has won the AXON Innovation for Health Award 2019 for the best start-up pitch at the sixth edition of Innovation for Health and the third edition of Global Investor Forum in WTC Rotterdam on 14 February. Ten companies were selected for a pitch presentation. These companies have all developed a new solution for a healthcare problem, ranging from biopharma to e-health, from medical technology to augmented reality. The jury panel, composed of investors from Life Sciences Partners, Biogeneration Ventures and CbusineZ, selected Reboocon Bionics and River BioMedics as the two finalists to pitch in the plenary closing program of the conference. In the end Reboocon received the majority vote from the audience as the best start-up and received the prize from jury chairman Carine van den Brink of AXON Lawyers.

Winning the AXON Innovation for Health Award is an exciting way to kick off the expansion into the Netherlands. It helps finding opportunities and investment to get potentially life-saving technologies to the patient. Shiqian Wang, CEO of Reboocon, was honoured to receive this distinction with so many other fantastic competitors doing incredible things to help improve and save lives. He emphasizes that “the Global Investor Forum and Innovation for Health provide a platform for young entrepreneurs, scientists, corporate executives and investors to meet and talk. The interaction during and after the event and the persistent inspiration are invaluable to all the participants.”
