Over the last few weeks, we have continued our intense activity in MJN. On the 23rd and 24th, our partners Jordina and David flew to Dublin to assist the final of the Social Impact awards organized by the European Investment Bank Institute. After 6 months of selection, we were named among the 15 most important impact projects in Europe. Those were two days of great experiences and shared moments with other projects that work in favor of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in areas such as health, environment, social inclusion, fight against poverty… Finally, we didn’t get the prize but the mere fact of being nominated is very important for MJN since one of our goals is to work to have a positive impact among people with epilepsy and their entire environment.
Also on the 24th, Ernest, Xavier, and Salva attended the Impact Forum organized by Ship2B in Barcelona. The Ship2B Foundation focuses on detecting projects with a potentially high impact and helps them to maximize this positive impact on society. For us, it is a pride that Ship2b is investing in our project and we are grateful that they have helped us in recent years to grow within the health ecosystem of Barcelona. Throughout the day we were able to hold very interesting meetings with other projects, investors specialized in impact economics and other partners and contacts that, without a doubt, will be very interesting for the future of our project.

It was a pleasure for us to talk about epilepsy and how MJN works to improve the lives of so many people in the world who live with the disease.
And this is nothing compared with what we have for November: we will attend the Dusseldorf Medica, in Brussels we are invited to explain our project and our financing needs for the upcoming years and we are already preparing a new trip to continue with our expansion to the United States in the next few months thanks to the invaluable help of ACCIÓ.
We keep moving!
