Ms Opeoluwa Ashimi Co-founder/ CEO M'Care Project UK

Opeoluwa, a STARTIFY7 winning participant, is a result-oriented professional, passionate about the healthcare industry. After garnering experience in hospital (primary to tertiary care) and community care systems, she has observed the need for innovative business models that take advantage of advances in digital technology to improve healthcare systems and redefine the needed structures in neglected populations. Focusing on Bottom of Pyramid markets and Low to Medium Income populations (BOP-LMIs), she believes frontier solutions can address the global challenge of healthcare access with the imminent need to lower costs for maximal social impact.
