My “STARTUP OF THE MONTH”: Physiostation shows its muscles!


Who is Physio Station and what are you offering? We are Physio therapy practice and opened our studio 6 month ago here in Schlieren We are happy to welcome patients in our new practice What was your motivation to start the business I guess there is a big competition out there I am a physiotherapist since 10 years now It was always my dream to start my own practice I think I am not made to be employed I did not see any other option than go for my own business It makes me happy to realize my own ideas and try out how they work It was the only logical step Tell us a bit more about what you experienced The most difficult phase was the research of the ideal place How did you do that research? I did several analyzes I checked the number of inhabitants per meter square and employees per meter square put them in relation to physiotherapists that work in this area This revealed the locations in that area Than I made a further analyse to find out where my competitors are and where I can find a property with a location that is better located than my competitors Did you experience other challenges beside the one you shared? I started with the creation of a business plan that was a lot of fun After that I was faced with negotiations with banks and authorities How did you handle that? I took the basic structure of my business plan from my economy studies and adapted that for my business I thought about where to find new development potential in my branch to make the discussions with the bank more attractive than my competitors How do you deal with your employees? Do you have internal meetings? How do you keep your employees motivated? My team is not completed yet! We are still hiring! Get in touch with Ben therapists out there! We have different communication tools in our practice On the one hand we use tools to give short instructions either used from the therapists to communicate with me or vice versa or work on open issues via our bookkeeping system The therapists that join my team have the possibility to share their experience with me through a face to face meeting In this meetings we share thoughts and socialize talk about their needs and desires what works good or not so good So we discuss how we can handle this issues together If changes can be implemented Or if not, why it’s not possible. With the dialog we try to avoid disappointments and keep communication transparent Where do you see Physio Station in near future? I hope that we can continue to grow as we actually do I am looking forward to expand my team And I hope to have more patients Further improve the exchange with the doctors The closer the exchange is between doctors, patients and us The better is the consultation we can offer to our patients This is our core competence for our patients
