IronCEO RapidFire: Torrey Smith, CEO&Co-Founder, Endiatx
Endiatx is a small startup that is pushing the edge in medical devices. How do you starting making pill size robots for people to swallow that can perform diagnostic tests like colon cancer screening?
Well if you are Torrey Smith, CEO, and Founder of Endiatx, you start in a dirt-floor cabin in the California mountains, watch your dad build gliders, get interested in science fiction and aviation, build towers at the Burning Man festival, attend Cal Poly and then finally start creating micro-sized robots.
As Torrey states;
"Rightfully so there is a bit of risk adversity in the medical world. If you look at Medical tech, [at] the cutting edge, we are often lagging 10-20 years behind what companies in the peninsula are doing. We are just trying to rip the band-aid of. We don't want to hurt anyone. There is a lot of tech available these days that can be brought to bear to save lives."
Each week, on the IronCEO RapidFire, I will try to find out what makes entrepreneurs tick and try to get you to sit in their seat. #entrepreneurship #startups #theironceo
