Maya Zlatanova became an entrepreneur driven by her mission to help people and create something meaningful. She was searching for a way to help her sister who was diagnosed with a medical condition that didn’t have any traditional treatment. That’s how Maya Zlatanova came with the idea for a platform which helps patients look for an alternative treatment.
She founded FindMeCure to bring research closer to patients by developing tools and providing analytics to the healthcare industry. “The biggest bottleneck for healthcare is data, the connection between patients and the companies is broken”, Maya Zlatanova explains.
