Xavier and colleagues will demonstrate how Bloodplus is used by potential donors and illustrate its advantages and characteristics.
Bloodplus is a startup company related with the health service sector. The idea was generated in December 2015 when we realized that a big problem in today’s society is the lack of blood donation. Concerned about the facts which say that everyday more than 80 people’s life is saved in Spain thanks to blood giving; that just in Catalonia, every single day more than 1.000 donations are needed; and that just the 3,8% of the population donates blood, we headed to find a solution to it. Moved to find a solution to it and being conscious that blood can’t be fabricated in labs or by robots, we developed a new method so that we as humans are more motivated and bloodplus becomes a process in which we all win. This method consist in thanking the donor by offering them promotions, discounts… Remember: “We can’t help everyone, but everyone can help someone”
