20 October 2022,
Ostoform is delighted to announce it has been awarded €2.5M in non-dilutive grant funding through the prestigious European Innovation Council (EIC) Accelerator program. The company is among just 75 start-ups and SMEs selected for funding from more than 1,000 applications across Europe.
Ostoform will use this funding to further advance and scale FLOWASSIST, its patented innovation that has shown to significantly reduce the risk of skin complications among ostomy pouch users while extending overall ostomy appliance wear time.
The news means Ostoform can accelerate its mission to make its technology more widely available to those who need it most, while addressing the need for sustainable ostomy appliances across the globe.
