Katerina: Thanks for the invite to be here today, Spiffy! Promakhos Therapeutics develops cures for autoimmune diseases. Millions of people around the globe suffer from such diseases. Yet, there are no cures. Current treatments block our immune system to manage symptoms and usually work for a limited time. Instead of dampening down the immune system, we develop molecules inspired by our body’s resident bacteria, to awaken our innate ability to resolve inflammation and heal. By targeting the root cause of the problem, we strive to deliver curative therapies.
Senan: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! At Delfina, we are addressing the maternal health crisis in the US and worldwide. Our goal is to bring intelligent pregnancy care to all pregnant patients around the world by 2030. We are improving the health of moms and babies with Delfina Care, an integrated pregnancy care data platform that offers personalized care based on a patient’s risk for pregnancy complications. We are creating a world in which all families are empowered to have a safe, healthy, and happy pregnancy.
Souvik: People living with disabilities have to rely on outdated products for everyday life and the people in charge of designing those products often don't have disabilities themselves. Aurie’s mission is to work with people living with disabilities to co-design products and services that help improve their independence and health. We're starting by building a reusable intermittent catheter system that will help people who need to use single-use intermittent catheters to urinate to gain greater independence and health in their daily lives.
