Point-of-care imaging is a massive area of unmet need for patients. When neurosurgeon Dr Jinendra Ekanayake first met one of his co-founders, Tim Constandinou, as a PhD student, they found a shared interest in brain-computer interfaces. As years went by, their conversations on the overlap between electronics and biology became ideas about developing surgical innovations to address this unmet need for handheld surgical tools and integrating them with the next generation.

Jinendra shares his story of co-founding Quetz at Imperial College London, and the challenges he faces in developing new tools and attracting funding in today's difficult environment. As always, our guest recommends an inspirational book for other founders.
