The story behind My Add On

My Add On is built on a passion for helping people
My grandmother, my inspiration

My grandmother is a proud woman. Chin up, always smiling and she never complains. Until the day she had to walk with crutches. They always fell over and they hurt her hands. I wondered how it was possible that after decades these problems had still not been solved. So I decided to do something about it and make my grandmother smile again.

Passion for solving problems

"Ever since I was little, I was thinking of a solution as soon as I saw a problem. It's amazing how many little things can irritate you on a daily basis, and people often let them. I think you can be the one to solve that problem. Think outside the box and you will see that a clever, yet simple solution is never far away! "

Marie Van den Broeck, founder of My Add On, is an Industrial Engineer Designer graduated from Ghent University in 2016. She is a problem solver, a believer and a passionate entrepreneur
