> GET GLOBAL
The GET Global service has been designed to support mature SMEs.
What do we mean by “mature SMEs”?
A mature SME is one which has already had some success in their initial markets, has a proven business model, a solution ready to be exported, and the necessary resources (human and financial) to access international markets.
Over 2014 and 2015 the GET project consortium has been working with SMEs to benefit from this service by providing matchmaking and speaker opportunities with potential international clients, information relating to key opportunities and market knowledge. From our work we have developed a body of resources which sits in the repository which you can access to support your eHealth business.
In the repository you will find useful links and tools, top tips and market knowledge. This information has been updated regularly.
INTERNATIONAL eHealth BUISNESS GROWTH
We want to support you and your business to achieve real success internationally.
We have over the past decade developed strong networks to help you access various markets including those across Europe, in China and across the USA.
One of the ways we can enable you to gain international agreements is to help you understand more about the different markets and systems across Europe in China and the USA
Along with understanding the markets and systems internationally we want to present SMES with a clear understanding of what the Commercial opportunities are. The following two documents present these for you:
From work carried out over the past two years we have developed some invaluable lessons which could support you to achieve faster success!

What we do
The GET Global service will put SMEs in contact with foreign commercialisation partners, potential customers and stakeholders by providing opportunities for matchmaking, networking and showcasing at events.
The service will also provide support to SMEs to facilitate their development and growth through, for example, knowledge transfer on international markets (challenges, opportunities), clearer insights into what purchasers are looking for (specific market needs), and feedback on their plans for internationalisation from an expert panel of investors, industry leaders and purchasers.
News and Events
During 2 years 400+ eHealth SMEs have received support on private funding, internationalization, business modelling and identification of new opportunities
The European GET project, funded by the European Commission has supported over 400 SMEs and startups by delivering four high value services. Throughout the 24 months the project has trained,
guided and coached Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to develop a successful business model, access private funding and/or set up an international business. Also, in cooperation with end-users
and health providers, the project has supported the identification of unmet needs that can become business opportunities.
“eHealth SMEs need ongoing and in-depth support to succeed”
According to project leader Jorge Gonzalez, “eHealth is a relatively young field with numerous business challenges for entrepreneurs and start-ups, including business modelling, internationalization and access to private funding. The GET project has delivered coaching, resources and other types of support to help eHealth SMEs succeed in the European markets and abroad."
Sarah Lopez, founder of the C2C Oncology project and one of the start-up participants declared “Without the support of the GET project I will have never believed in my idea or found the strength to present it at a contest being alone. The advice I was given was very helpful.”
The CEO of OvulaRing/VivensoMedical, another start-up participant, added: “The pitch rehearsal from Get Funded was quite impressive and useful straight to the point. The critical reflections and the recommendations given by Pascal Lardier improved the presentation quite well and gave us the possibility to focus the content for the presentation in adoption towards the audience.”
Valuable guides and reports for digital health startups
Over the last 24 months, the project has generated a rich repository of online resources including many useful guides, interviews and reports. Among the most interesting results are the list of 250+ global digital health investors, guides to successful business modelling and the many ‘’lessons learnt” for SMEs looking for funding or to access new international markets. The repository is free to access and can be found on the GET project website. It will remain available even after the project at www.get-ehealth.eu.
The GET project is pleased to announce that we have secured Dave Whitlinger, Executive Director New York eHealth Collaborative to be the guest speaker on an international Webinar to look at:
