Tinybots: “We’re here to make history, not to make a quick buck”

What is the key to success? Is it about personal traits, like talent, intelligence or creativity – and what about your resources, like money, a vast network and power?

In GOING GRIT we explore the stories of innovators in health & high tech. We dive into their inspirations and motivations as we try to understand their leitmotiv. Will we get a glimpse of their grit factor? This edition: Wang Long Li, founder and CEO of health innovation company Tinybots.

Tracking Tuberculosis -pinkRF knows precisely how, when and where

Viral diseases can radically change the world as we know it, with a huge impact on society. If anything, the COVID-19 pandemic taught us that. Yet there are several infectious diseases that still require better treatments and procedures for diagnosis. One of them is tuberculosis: in 2020 the second leading infectious killer after COVID-19, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Even though we can already treat its symptoms with antibiotics, there are still challenges when it comes to preventing it from spreading. Klaus Werner however, CEO and co-founder of pinkRF, plans on changing that.

When your world turns dark

Joyce de Ruiter – Ambassador of the Usher Syndrome Foundation

Joyce de Ruiter was sixteen years old when her parents had to tell her that she’d been diagnosed with Usher syndrome: an inherited disorder which deteriorates hearing and especially vision during life, often resulting in people becoming deaf and blind. “Finally, the puzzle pieces of hearing loss and night blindness had been named, but at the same time your whole future outlook wavers.” Joyce tells us about the impact this diagnosis had on her life and how it gradually turned into something she now draws strength and courage from.
