Where did you get the idea for your start-up?
Zied Tayeb. – “In fact, it all started for me when my mother was late stage diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
It took my mom almost five years to realise that she suffers from MS, which is a very tough brain disease, and it was, unfortunately, too late to do anything, and now she can’t walk anymore. Now looking back, I think she would have appreciated it if she had had any medical device that could diagnose and monitor this brain disease. That’s why we are starting MyelinH, whose mission is to provide revolutionary software technology for remote diagnosis and monitoring of brain diseases.
What are the qualities needed to launch your start-up?
“Perseverance, ferocity and persistence. A good say would be the quote from Winston Churchill: ‘If you’re going through hell, keep going.’
We often hear that it is essential to make mistakes. What do you think about this?
“I think it is part of the process and we should definitely embrace failure. The more we make mistakes, the more we learn and the better we become.”
