What are you doing at work?
As a startup CEO, I spend most of my time finding new funding, doing pitches and meeting potential investors. I also lead all the technical development of our products, and then I try to strike business deals.
What are the most important concepts in your technology?
That people want to monitor their chronic diseases and their individual health at home or wherever they are, but that 95 percent still are confined to primary care for measurements and evidence. We want to change this by building products and solutions that fulfil this unmet clinical need.
Why is it exciting?
The ups and downs, meeting so many new and interesting people, and not having a boss. And for me as an engineer – to build new technology that does not exist in the world market.
What do you think are the most interesting controversies?
The fact that the doctor/patient relationship is changing around the world at this moment.
Your own favourite projects?

Your other favourite examples, internationally and nationally?
I get inspired by so much impact tech, and Greta Thunberg of course.
How do you usually explain what you do, in simplest terms?
We develop and commercialise mobile electronic devices and app to monitor biomarkers for individual health – in new ways.
