Diabetic patients suffer from the pain of pricking their fingers several times a day just to get blood sugar measurements, and their monitoring devices don’t provide key measurements such as ketones that also play a significant role in diabetes management. Without enough data, they’re constantly reacting to their disease rather than staying ahead of it.

Those days are over. Eido Innova is changing diabetics’ lives, starting with pain-free, needleless blood sugar monitoring and ketone measurements, which we combine with a smartphone app that puts proactive diabetes management tools at patients’ fingertips. Our proprietary device takes advantage of modern technology, so diabetics can finally manage their disease with ease—and at a low cost.

In the near-term, we are a non-FDA-regulated wellness device that is utilized for ketogenic diet management and weight loss, so not only do we help diabetic patients, but we aspire to help others avoid diabetes altogether. As we develop the comp...

Those days are over. Eido Innova is changing diabetics’ lives, starting with pain-free, needleless blood sugar monitoring and ketone measurements, which we combine with a smartphone app that puts proactive diabetes management tools at patients’ fingertips. Our proprietary device takes advantage of modern technology, so diabetics can finally manage their disease with ease—and at a low cost.

In the near-term, we are a non-FDA-regulated wellness device that is utilized for ketogenic diet management and weight loss, so not only do we help diabetic patients, but we aspire to help others avoid diabetes altogether. As we develop the company further, we will extend our product portfolio to include an FDA-regulated device which is a diabetes management system.

Our wellness market includes obese patients who are at-risk for becoming diabetic, plus people who are into ketogenic diets and lifestyles. This market may also include employers, especially self-insured ones, who know healthier employees means lower healthcare costs.

In the FDA-regulated medical device space, our clients include diabetic patients, clinical care providers and family members, especially parents of diabetic children. Health insurers will benefit from reduced medication costs and fewer ER visits due to better managed blood sugar, while health systems will see a reduction in complications from diabetes, thus lowering the cost of care for them as well.

Recommendations

Allan Daisley Managing Director at Startupbootcamp Digital Health

Carlos and Nancy are a great team. They are intelligent, tenacious, and fun to be around. Having worked closely with them in the ZeroTo510 accelerator I've seen their curiosity, willingness to listen, and their strong work ethic. Whatever the challenge is, they get it done! They'd be a great addition to any program and I unequivocally recommend them.

Ulises Elias CEO at Orion Startups

I strongly recommend the team of Eido Innova. Carlos, as a founder, has been very proactive at developing and pushing the product to the market. His trajectory together with his co-founder make them a perfect match for team, product and market. During the acceleration program at Orion Startups, Carlos always showed his best skills at managing the company at all levels. The company's technology is very promising, the market is eager for solutions like the one offered by Eido Innova. I am sure you would take the right decision if you select Eido Innova and Carlos as a company to invest in.

Part 2 of 2: Nancy and Carlos are two of the hardest-working entrepreneurs I know. During ZeroTo510, they listened to customers and industry experts, learned from customer discovery, and adjusted accordingly. They demonstrated the highest level of professionalism and delivered on their promises and commitments. They’ve demonstrated the vision to see beyond the rest of the market and are working diligently to deliver a viable solution that fits within the lives of their customers—and markedly makes a positive difference in the lives of patients. I’ve watched them make the transition from founders with a shiny, interesting idea to informed business leaders with a portfolio of solutions for obese, pre-diabetic and diabetic patients. They’ve turned a product into a company. They’re ready to take the next step, to work with a health system to help refine their product roadmap and test their first solution. They would best benefit next from a health system-affiliated accelerator.

Part 1 of 2: I had the opportunity to coach Carlos and Nancy during the ZeroTo510 Medical Device Accelerator, where I was the program’s Entrepreneur-In-Residence. My first encounter with them was during the application process and interviews that followed. I was immediately struck by their willingness to disrupt their lives and travel 2,000 miles from Chihuahua, Mexico to a place they’d never been to pursue their dreams. What I learned when they arrived was even more impressive: in fact, Carlos drove from Chihuahua and took a long detour around some of the more dangerous areas of Mexico to get to Brownsville, TX to pick up Nancy and their newborn baby of less than one month—and then they travelled the final 1,000 miles to Memphis.

Luis Almanza Managing Director at Orion Startups

I know this team from the beginning. I think some of the keys to their success is their professionalism and quality of execution. Nancy and Carlos are a perfect mix of knowledge, vision, intelligence, and hard work. Now they are one of the top companies in our portfolio and we think they will disrupt the market in a few years. I have to say also they are awesome persons.
