This post focuses on the highlights of King's Entrepreneur's third event in the Founder Five series. The event featured three remarkable guest speakers, including King's College London alum and Entrepreneur First (EF) cohort member, Pahini Pandya, as well as Spencer Ejiro Duvwiama and Nicholas Sopuch.
From Doctor to Entrepreneur: Panakeia Technologies
Pahini Pandya shared with us her journey from being a doctor to an entrepreneur and the innovative company she founded, Panakeia technologies. 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 technologies, 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.
