The Harvard Business School New Venture Competition recognises Trustedoctor
Trustedoctor, TrustedHealth’s first ecosystem partner gets into the final five in globally recognised, prestigious competition.
August 2017. Twenty-six entrepreneurs and startups presented their ideas, hard work and dreams to the Harvard Business School New Venture Competition (NVC). This competition awards ventures in two separate tracks — Business and Social Enterprise. The Business Track recognises ventures with economic returns that drive substantial market value. The Social Enterprise Track recognises those that drive social change using non-profit, for-profit or hybrid models.
Trustedoctor, the first ecosystem partner of TrustedHealth, was one of only five finalists out of 26 teams. It was a moment we will never forget.
Dr Philippe Schucht said: “We all come from such different backgrounds. I’m a brain surgeon. Greg comes from finance and Lukasz from IT and yet we have all been thinking about the same problem. Then we got together and suddenly, Trustedoctor is a viable solution to a very big problem.”
Together, we have constructed something very meaningful.
The Harvard NVC Worldwide competition assesses around 171 teams from 14 different regions. The NVC Europe and Israel even saw 26 projects assessed with only five finalists and one winner and the competition to catch the judges’ eye was tough.

For me, it was an incredible moment when I heard that Trustedoctor had been named a finalist. It made me realise that all the hard work we’ve put into this project, the dreams that hold it together, and the hopes that make it thrive, are worth everything. It may have been a long, rough road, but these moments, this recognition, makes us feel as if we are making a difference to people’s lives and doing the right thing.
The Harvard Business School New Venture Competition is recognised as one of the best in the world.
For Trustedoctor to receive such a high accolade from an organisation that’s known for its ability to recognise talent and support its growth is a huge achievement. Thank you to everyone who has believed in what we do, where we are going and our next step in transforming specialised healthcare.
