SaaStock Sarajevo – Online event01.02.2022. @ 06:00 pmTopic: Digital Transformation in Healthcare Speakers: Emina Kapetanović & Kenan Nazdrajić – Co-founders @ Motus Health appAbout the event:
Motus application arose from facilitating recovery and providing proper care to stroke patients, their families, and caregivers. Developed in cooperation with a team of world-renowned medical professionals, Motus Health delivers the perfect solution for rehabilitation and socialization after a stroke. It is made for use by all ages and types of stroke.
After having a personal experience with stroke and not having solutions due to conditions caused by the pandemic, Emina Kapetanovic decided to make an application that will help both patients and caregivers to go through the recovery process. So, she and Kenan Nazdrajic co-founded a startup they thought could make progress in this field.
The startup was recognized from the beginning and had been receiving support. The first investor found Motus through Internet articles and recognized the potential of the application in the European market. After the founders realized the potential and qualityof their startup, they relocated to the city of Cologne in Germany. 2020 was more than successful for Motus Health.
In search of investment, Emina and Kenan delivered emails to all major companies in BiH. After a positive response from Sparkasse Bank, they received an initial incentive to start a startup business.
Through the Patent Innovation competition, which involved more than 2,400 applications, only 11 teams across Europe were awarded. As a result, Motus is the first team in the program’s history to come from the Balkans.
Portugal was the first destination they visited, and there the goal was to validate the ideas they had. After that, they researched the market through this competition and prepared for a demo day in Spain and Denmark.
In 2022, by receiving an award through the CROWN project, they also got the opportunity to expand their team and further work on the startup.
Motus Health team is a mediator between professionals and ordinary people. They convey the needs and make them come true with the help of experts in neurology, physiatry, psychology, nutrition, and speech therapy. Their hope one day is to build an ecosystem for neurological and neurodivergent diseases.
Emina, a founder & CEO of a Motus Health startup, has a strong background in project management which she gained through her involvement in NGOs and student projects, so that’s why she decided to get her bachelor’s degree in Business & IT.
Kenan, a co-founder & COO of a Motus Health startup, was an IT student and a full- time designer at a digital agency before joining a healthcare startup. After gaining his bachelor’s degree in IT, he hopes to get his master’s degree in artificial intelligence and further contribute to the development of future projects in healthcare.
We are glad to have the opportunity to meet the founders of this startup and hear more about the application that represents innovation in the digital world. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, February 1st, so save the date!
