Founder Fives Series 3: Panakeia Technologies

By Yasmin Asghari

This post focuses on the highlights of King's Entrepreneur's third event in the Founder Five series. The
featured three remarkable guest speakers, including King's College London alum and Entrepreneur
(EF) cohort member, Pahini Pandya, as well as Spencer Ejiro Duvwiama and Nicholas Sopuch.

Pahini Pandya shared with us her journey from being a doctor to an entrepreneur and the innovative
company she founded, Panakeia. Her company aims to revolutionize cancer identification through an AI
platform that enables simplified, rapid diagnostics to inform the precision treatment of cancer.

Pandya's talk was both informative and inspiring, as she shared her journey of starting as a doctor and
transitioning into the world of entrepreneurship. After completing her medical degree and working as a
junior doctor in London, Pandya realized that her true passion lay in applying technology to healthcare to
improve patient outcomes. This led her to join the Entrepreneur First program, which helps talented
individuals build their own tech companies from scratch.

At Entrepreneur First, Pandya was able to develop her skills and learn the resources needed to start her
own company. She met her co-founder and together they founded Panakeia, which offers a cutting-
edge AI platform that can detect cancer faster and more accurately, leading to faster and more
effective treatments. Her presentation showcased the innovative approach to healthcare technology
and the potential impact it could have on the medical field.

Entrepreneur First is a pre-seed startup accelerator that helps aspiring entrepreneurs build companies
from scratch. The program provides talented individuals with the resources and support needed to
create successful startups, including access to funding, mentorship, and a global network of
entrepreneurs and investors. The program is open to individuals from any academic or professional
background, and the emphasis is on building companies that have the potential to make a significant
impact in their respective industries.








Following Pandya's presentation, we had two team members from Entrepreneur First join us to discuss
their program for entrepreneurial-minded students who want to get ahead in their careers starting
now. Spencer Ejiro Duvwiama and Nicholas Sopuch shared their experiences and insights about the
Entrepreneur First program, highlighting its benefits and how it can help aspiring entrepreneurs turn their
ideas into successful businesses.

As a committee member, I was pleased with the success of the event. The Founder Five series event was
well-organized, with great speakers who provided engaging and informative presentations. Additionally,
King's Entrepreneurs provided all attendees with free pizza, which was well-received and added to the
overall positive experience of the event.

The event provided attendees with valuable insights into the world of biotech and entrepreneurship, and
we were pleased to offer ample networking opportunities for attendees to connect with like-minded
individuals and discuss their own ideas and experiences.

In conclusion, the Founder Five series event hosted by King's Entrepreneurs was a great success,
providing attendees with valuable insights into the world of biotech and entrepreneurship. We were

thrilled with the quality of the presentations and the level of engagement from the speakers. The event
was an excellent opportunity for attendees to learn about cutting-edge technology and innovative
approaches to healthcare, as well as the resources and support available for aspiring entrepreneurs.
