Ik-Herstel and inBiome presented themselves together with three other promising innovative scale-ups during the Zorg2025 meeting at Club Dauphine in Amsterdam. The other participants were:
• Disofa; online therapy
• Kepler Night Nurse (UvA spin-off); an AI application that monitors your well-being at night
• Chantal the Digital Assistant; the digital doctor’s assistant.

The professional jury praised the level of nominees and proclaimed Ik-Herstel the winner because of its potential positive impact for patients in the Netherlands, but also in the rest of the world. Director Jeroen de Wilde of Ik-Herstel called the prize “a great encouragement to continue”.
