Founder: Béatrice Compagnon
Venture: Boobytrapp Industry: Health + Tech
Tell us about your venture:
Boobytrapp is a revolutionary mobile app that connects breast cancer patients and helps them organize their treatment schedule through an innovative social platform.
What inspired you?
When I went through breast cancer at 37, I missed the ability to connect with other women that understood what I was going through. Organizing treatment was also more complicated than I thought, and as a tech girl, my first reaction was "isn't there an app for that"? There was not, and this is how the idea of Boobytrapp was born.
What makes your venture different than what's already on the market?
There is no app on the market right now that combines the social network feature with treatment management options.
