We can't do everything ourselves...

that's why we team up with partners and continuously scout for a wide range of interesting players in the start-up and innovation environment who all have the expertise to create the right solutions for people living with a skin condition.


With hubs in UK, Canada, France, US and Denmark, we collaborate with knowledgable partners to bring new solutions, ideas and insights to life. Together, we explore new ways to develop and integrate services, bridging the gap between the digital and the physical solutions.

We are currently looking to establish a global network of partners. If you want to partner up or hear more, please reach out.

We are currently engaging actively with startups focusing on: Imaging technology, Monitoring/Sensoring, Prediction, Mental Health, Adherence, Intelligent use of user/patient data and in general validated solutions improving a "Personalised Patient Journey",

We aim to invest in early phase international startups from pre-seed to Series-A with a ticket size between €100K and €1mill in syndication with local investors. During 2016 we have partnered up with more than 60 VCs across the globe with focus on eHealth and share dealflow of the most promising startups to secure not only the early phase funding but a close partnership until exit.
