For World Alzheimer’s Month, we gathered up in Antwerp to deepen our insight in a traditional “Sharing the Passion”, this time with SI² Fund’s portfolio company Active Minds and Professor Rik Vandenberghe of KULeuven.
Shareholders, investors, social entrepreneurs and the SI² Fund team participated actively in round tables around dementia and Alzheimer, current societal challenges. The Sharing the Passion was kicked off by Ben Atkinson-Willes and Alice Osborne from Active Minds, who came from London to give us an insight into their activities. This was followed by the expert’s vision of Prof. Rik Vandenberghe, who is also Head of the memory clinic UZ, Hospitals Leuven. He raised awareness about the characteristics of the Alzheimer disease and dementia, as well as the evolution of the patients that suffer from these diseases. Then we had a chance to brainstorm with Active Minds about two of their current challenges and the future desired developments of the company. A lot of promising outputs came out of this meeting and we are all looking forward to see them happening !
The two following days, we used the opportunity of introducing Active Minds in the Belgium field of care for Alzheimer and dementia patients with visits to several relevant parties in Belgium active in this field.
