  • What is the talk about?

    Fredrik: Bringing change in the lagging world of medicine, sometimes starts with a personal story. This crazy idea we had in 2010 has now become a medical grade iOS-application, which currently ranks #1 among diabetes apps.

  • Who is it for?

    Fredrik: Entrepreneurs, mobile and web developers and those who wish their lines of code to mean more than a way to pay rent.

    Oh and regulatory affairs managers! Don't forget them! :)

  • What will the audience get from it?

    Fredrik: A glimpse of the mySugr story and our journey to where we are today, which is a quite unique roll.

  • What do you presently work at?

    Fredrik: At mySugr we build mobile apps which help people with diabetes – the Companion ( app is a registered class I medical device, approved by the FDA, which actually saves lives by making diabetes therapy awesome.

  • Which of your existing achievements do you value the most?

    Fredrik: Creating an app which actually saves lives. Taking it from idea, to medical device, to the #1 diabetes app in most countries where we are active.

    We have grown our team from 3 to 25 people, have offices in Italy, Austria and the US.

    This has been an amazing ride which keeps on getting better.

  • What would you like to achieve?

    Climb Kilimanjaro.
    Run half a marathon in less than 1:45.
    Cure diabetes, but until we achieve this we will make it awesome to have it.

  • What do you look forward to at the WebExpo?

    Fredrik: Learn from some of the brightest minds in web and mobile as well as get to know new potential coworkers!
