Team & Purpose

We are the founders of the CBO Initiative, as years of experience from both large international companies like NOVO Nordisk and Coloplast, SME, and several startup companies have confirmed the high failure rates of MedTech startups.

We have seen several interesting innovations that never reached the market successfully, because of the complexity of the industry in both product development, regulatory, clinical, and sales as mentioned on this website, and we do think that working smarter and more coordinated is part of the solution.

We are the founders, but the CBO-Initiative is intended to be flexible and include experts from various functions, if and when required, but only if it happens in a coordinated and working as one team – as that is where speed and cost savings lie.
