HOW IT WORKS IN PRACTICE

JANSSEN

CHALLENGE

How can we integrate consumer-centric disease management in our business model?

RESULTS

One of the ideas that was pitched successfully to Janssen's senior board and Vlerick staff, was to introduce serious games designed to improve adherence to treatment.

IMPACT

The proposed 'serious games' are being incubated in Janssen's Venture & Incubation Centre (VIC).

“The real power of the innovation challenge is the coaching and that’s where Vlerick comes in. Its tutors have solid business experience, which is invaluable when it comes to shaping ideas into realistic business opportunity plans.”

“And then there’s the School’s academic and business network, which I’m sure will prove extremely useful for future ventures. These boot camps give people the opportunity to see their idea turned into a business. Think what a motivation booster that is! The way I see it, these boot camps are part of one big change management programme with revenue generation as the spillover!
