Co-founders, Praapti and Avlokita, were motivated by their life experiences to develop solutions for the mounting challenges of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
Growing up in a family of doctors, Praapti was driven to tackle public health issues using her scientific training. Her doctoral research in tuberculosis revealed the complexities of drug resistance as not only a public health crisis but also one with socioeconomic and mental health implications. This learning drove the desire to build a systematic approach towards applying deep tech solutions to solve public health challenges.
Avlokita was inspired by her colleagues' passion for research in infectious diseases. Collaborations with them drove her interest in anti-microbial resistance and real-world solutions rooted in technology.
