An innovation platform sponsored by the Novo Nordisk Foundation

We’re setting out to solve some of healthcare’s biggest challenges.

Radical things are happening here. Join us on the journey towards a new healthcare system.

We’re a diverse team of doers aiming to do healthcare innovation differently — focusing on action and real-world impact from the get-go.


Powered by practice.

We’ve set out to do one thing: Solve real healthcare challenges for real people. We don’t engage in science just for the sake of science. We use our knowledge to innovate, launch and repeat.

Excited to explore.

We celebrate curiosity, exploration and everything new. We see emerging technologies as enormous and exciting opportunities for new innovations in healthcare!

Going beyond the 'now'.

Everything we do must have the potential to go beyond the present. We think big – we have to. We’re solving some of healthcare's biggest challenges on a global scale.
