This failed in 2011 but the experience taught me some of the most valuable lessons of my life. Around the same time, I was spending time in hospitals due to an unwell relative. I decided to go to medical school as a result in 2012. In 2014, I founded snap40 as a direct result of my experiences working in hospital. I was part of the care of patients who had deteriorated avoidably because the warning signs were detected late. I wanted a world where myself and my family would be treated preventatively at the earliest possible point. snap40 prevent illness by automatically detecting those at high risk.
