Interview with jongondernemenNL on 2015


Insulisten® was developing a multifunctional insulin pen attachment that could be attached independent of the pen’s brand and type. The tool made the released dosage of insulin voice-controlled, automatically configurable and aurally verifiable, which increases diabetics’ patient compliance, improves the diabetics’ level of independence and reduces additional medical expenses.

Insulisten® in a simple manner integrated the affordability of insulin pens with the ‘smart functions’ of expensive insulin pumps.

Important achievements of Insulisten® are The creation of a qualitatively working medical hardware prototype, a sophisticated advisory board with market leaders, doctors, and patients, a successfully closed investment deal and the close collaboration with different international partners and stakeholders.

Unfortunately, Insulisten® couldn't close a second investment round  for the development of an official certified medical hardware product and the necessary medical trials. We had to stop Insulisten® in 2018.

I was responsible for the business development, the concept development, stakeholder management, brand management and team development.

TapYours prototype


TapYours was an IT application for smartphones what was developed to end the customer's disappointment of hearing: 'I'm sorry, we do not have it in your size anymore.' With insight into the current shop's stock, TapYours can send the consumer directly to the store related webshop, what increases the likelihood of costumers making their purchase reality after all.

TapYours developed different test cases with brands and stores to analyze potential users behavior and see how this was affecting the revenue stream(s) of the stores. We found out that partnering stores and early adopters were enthusiastic about the possibilities and the user interface, but that too many people were not yet capable of using our software because their phones were lacking the NFC technology at the time. Alternatives for the NFC technology had been proven to be user-unfriendly, to hard to implement or too expansive during our earlier test rounds. Unfortunately, we concluded to stop with TapYours.

Achievements of TapYours:

  • A working prototype;

  • Close collaboration with local shops and other local stakeholders;

  • Running product test of a year.

  • Business development;
