Partnership with Bibian Mentel

Paralympic snowboarder Bibian Mentel and the Mentelity Foundation have initiated a partnership with ttopstart. The partnership is built around medical innovation, a winning drive and delivering top performances. 

Bibian is the reigning world champion for Para-Snowboarding and winner of the Gold Medal at the Paralympic Winter Games 2014 in Sochi, Russia. In 2014 she was also voted Paralympic athlete of the year. ttopstart offers Bibian Mentel financial support on the road to Sochi. One of the goals of the collaboration is to show the fantastic performances that can be reached by applying medical innovations.  

Together with the Mentelity Foundation, ttopstart will launch actions to highlight the importance of centralising the patient perception in medical innovation. The Mentelity Foundation’s mission is to encourage as many children and (young) adults as possible with a physical disability to participate in sport. ttopstart supports this mission and will use its knowhow and network to the benefit of the Foundation.

Check out our short film below about our collaboration, in which Bibian tells her story about how she became a Paralympic snowboarding champion and what medical innovation has made possible for her, and Jasper (partner at ttopstart) explains our motives here at ttopstart.
