The term “Techforgood” gets used often by start-ups to describe their product or service, but not many will have the impact that my clients ground breaking approach to resolving a global pandemic that is impacting society across the globe, showing little or no sign of abating.
Our client is a HealthTech Startup. They were established in 2019 and are successfully delivering a preventative solution for two critical clinical conditions by utilising a revolutionary clinical method supported by cutting edge technology.
Within the UK these conditions impact our NHS enormously, costing £Billions a year in treatment, but far more importantly having a massive human impact on the lives of millions of people. They arise out of a very human form of addiction, which unlike alcohol, gambling or recreational drugs, is needed to fuel our bodies in moderation to survive, but its overuse is blighting the lives of millions across the globe, leading to extreme physical and mental trauma.
Both of these conditions, Type 2 Diabetes and Obesity, are largely reversible if not left too late, and by using the minds of brilliant clinicians and cutting edge technology, experts have created a product and solution to disrupt and change the lives of the millions of people who are effected by these conditions, in the process saving governments and related commerce £$€Billions.
The team behind this venture have the highest pedigree in terms of previous success within HealthTech startups, having already taken 6 startups from inception to $Billion IPO.
