“It is not essential to make mistakes”

En amont de l’événement Start-up Stories: Round 1 organisé par le Paperjam Club le mardi 25 février 2020 à l’Atelier, une des start-up, MyMedBot, représentée par Jacob Arnould, partage sa vision d’entrepreneur.

Where did you get the idea for your start-up?

Jacob Arnould. – “The idea of MyMedBot originated from my personal experience of being diagnosed with a life-threatening disease, type 1 diabetes. However, over the last year, the solution has pivoted. MyMedBot is more than just for people with diabetes. MyMedBot has evolved to become a communication platform that automates the communication between on-site responders in schools with students and staff. Indoor positioning is our USP automating the “where?” of emergencies and enabling us to provide insights on how to improve emergency protocols across campuses.

From the idea to its realisation, there is only one step… What was the trigger for your entrepreneurial adventure?

“Anywhere, at any time, I can rapidly wind up in a situation where I cannot help myself. I require help from others, and those in a position to help are either unaware or misinformed. I went out to find a solution on the market, but could not find one. 

We often hear that it is essential to make mistakes. What do you think of that?

“It is not essential to make mistakes – it is essential to learn from them.”
