Empowering Leuven’s innovation scene: from research to revenue

Tuesday, September 19, 2023
Egwin Avau
Founder & CEO

We’ve been operating for over 9 years in the heart of Leuven, a region known for its high-tech research and development. In this article we’ll describe how we’re assisting innovative firms in the region with their digital product development activities and cloud engineering.

Turning research into a digital business

The journey from research to revenue is never straightforward. Turning a scientific concept into a marketable product comes with many obstacles and is in dire need of a systematic methodology to stay on course.

That’s where our team at Panenco comes in: we work shoulder-to-shoulder with our clients’ teams to create scalable products loved by users. Building with the customer experience in mind is a key principle we’ll pertinently advocate for. User input should be the key driver behind the product roadmap. Happy users are the greatest assurance towards your revenue goals.

A product studio as your digital partner to combine speed and quality

​​In the realm of high-tech innovation, our client’s focus should primarily remain on scientific advancements and validation. We complement our clients by assisting with the digital dimensions from cloud architecture to outstanding user experiences.

We bring experienced teams together, backed by an effective operating model. As time is of the essence, our teams adopt an agile delivery approach with a continuous release strategy while safeguarding the product quality through effective CI/CD pipelines with automated test coverage, performance and security checks.

Having gone through 20+ digital product development trajectories with our clients, we would love to safeguard you from the pitfalls that we’ve observed over the years.

Working in true partnership

As a researcher building a spin-off company or new venture, you’re fighting an uphill battle. We understand and honour the risks you’re taking. Our core promise is to make sure that you can sleep on both ears with regards to your digital infrastructure: cloud architecture, scalable data systems, full-stack software engineering and frictionless customer experiences.

We’ll act as an integral part of your team, every step of the way! Joint strategy sessions, roadmap meetings, planning sessions, daily standups and demos will keep us moving together in the same direction.

We walk the talk! Here’s some of our recent work:

  • SoundTalks: a KU Leuven spin off that is turning sound data in pig farms into an instrument for early disease detection
  • QIT: turning years of mental health research into a scaling SaaS product with over 50.000 users and a 20% MoM growth rate

Assisting you in setting up foundations for scale

Digital products are subject to increasing regulations and quality standards - rightfully so. We assist our clients in making sure they can confidently bring their product to market:

  • Regulatory: assisting you with setting up an ISMS (Information Security Management System) as part of your journey towards being ISO27001 certified
  • Legal: assisting with your legal documentation such as the General Terms & Conditions, Data Processing Agreements and various policies
  • Quality engineering: building the necessary assurances into your deployment pipelines with automated tests, error and performance monitoring systems and more
  • Customer success: setting up the necessary tooling to engage with your user audience supported by automated communication flows
  • Infrastructure: managed cloud services to make sure your systems are in safe hands and ready to scale

Let’s work together?

We’re ready to assist you throughout your digital product development journey. We’ll hit the ground running with experienced product teams who will shorten your time-to-market and set a high quality bar right off the bat. Curious to hear more? Let’s talk!

Let's build!
