Their background story

inHEART, founded in 2017, is committed to delivering AI-enabled, a digital twin of the heart. The aim is to enhance the care of patients living with cardiac disease. The 3D models of the heart aim to allow physicians to optimize treatment strategies based on each patient’s unique cardiac anatomy. One of the company’s main objectives is to improve treatment strategies to support clinical outcomes.

Currently, inHEART is commercially available in the US and EU through a direct sales force model. The future plans include establishing a global distribution network.

Previously, the startup raised $200K from the Founders Games Grand Finals at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, hosted by Webit Foundation.

In their own words

It’s exciting for us to be at the forefront of transforming the healthcare industry with the power of AI technology by improving the efficiency of care, quality of decision-making, and effectiveness and safety of medical interventions,” said Todor Jeliaskov, Chairman and CEO of inHEART.
