Impact & responsibility in MedTech
She is a growth expert with a background in expansive startup journeys like Kry’s. Ellie Fokas-Schuettinger, COO at Mindmore, loves to fly the plane while building it ✈️
“The best part about my job is getting the opportunity to scale the machinery that Sara has founded. It’s humbling to take this amazing idea, and contribute to spreading it.”
Mindmore, with digital tools for cognitive testing, are revolutionizing cognitive care.
“The brain looks the same no matter who you are or where you are from, and thanks to the digitalization of cognitive testing, we can offer screening to a very large population. There are no limitations to how many people we can help, I find that very exciting.”
Earlier Mindmore has been primarily focused in the segments dementia and occupational health care - but are now being applied to all types of cognitive impairment.
Moving fast with impact
In order to thrive at Mindmore you have to be driven by impact and get excited about the possibility to improve people's quality of life, Ellie says.
“And at the same time love a fast paced environment. Health care is often a slow moving machinery, which makes it important to be quick, agile and data driven.”
When joining Mindmore you can expect a lot of responsibility, and the freedom that comes with it. Meaning - Freedom is the ability to set your schedule, to decide on the work you do, to make decisions. And Responsibility is being held accountable for your actions.
“And perhaps above all, you would be able to see how the hard work we’re all putting in, actually has a positive impact on our users.”
Responsibility and kindness
A dream job for Ellie is a place where there are risks, a lot of bravery and freedom under responsibility.
“I hate being held tight on a leash, and I never want to do that to my team. I’ll tell them our final destination, if they want to run, bicycle or swim to get there, it is up to them.”
Besides being fast and brave, Mindmore is also a kind company.
“We set very high goals and we run fast, but we’re humble people working for a humbling cause, it’s not just about numbers.”
When seeking a dream job, it’s of great importance to interview and control the culture, Ellie says.
“Ask questions and be curious about the culture, make sure to meet the person who would become your manager, make informal reference checks on both. A job can sound amazing, but if you get a bad manager or end up in a bad/toxic culture, you’re not going to want to stay.”
