Oksigen Lab & I-propeller introduce you to "Boost your Impact!"

The "Boost Your Impact" sessions are networking events organized around three times a year by Oksigen with the aim to connect social entrepreneurs, NGO’s, corporates, investors, coaches and supporters of the Oksigen community.

Have you already heard of our “Boost Your Impact” sessions? These are networking events organized around three times a year by Oksigen with the aim to connect social entrepreneurs, NGO’s, corporates, investors, coaches and supporters of the Oksigen community. The objective is to give the floor to social entrepreneurs who would pitch key challenges that they are facing and benefit from collective brainstorming.

On October 26th 2016, Oksigen Lab & I-propeller organized an edition which focused on accelerating the integration of social enterprises into the healthcare ecosystem and on strengthening their ability to partner and access key resources to broaden their impact. We welcomed the additional input of healthcare professionals, mutuality’s, government and other actors playing a critical role in the ecosystem.

 We had the pleasure to reflect on four social enterprises’ challenges.

  • Firstly, Esperity, the first multilingual support community for cancer patients was willing to gather insights about the way they could accelerate revenue growth by pivoting their value proposition and/or targeted market.
  • Secondly, Bluesquare, which provides results-based financing technology solutions looked for ideas to stimulate their activities in the Belgian healthcare ecosystem.
  • Thirdly, Médecins Du Monde, which is already well-known for providing health care to the most deprived presented their ambition to develop a business model for their Medibus in Wallonia.
  • Finally, the last organization was Gymsana, which is planning to scale in Flanders their activities consisting in mobilizing the elderly and people with chronic diseases and disabilities

Fruitful ideas emerged and inspiring encounters happily occurred.

We wish success to all our participating organizations and will be happy to welcome all “Boost your Impact” enthusiasts to our following editions!

 

The Boost Your Impact events are supported by La Loterie Nationale.
