Automatic for the people
Ranin believes that the shift from treatment of disease to prevention – a change accelerated by Covid-19 – is creating a new kind of health & wellness market. Healthzilla wants to be in the thick of the action, helping the relevant industry players and companies to improve the quality of life of their customers and employees through intelligent automation.
“Our mission of helping people increase their healthspan with healthy habits will be achieved through tight collaboration with partners and customers, hard work and grit, and an endless growth mindset,” she lays down the game plan.
Being involved with Health Incubator Helsinki amidst a global pandemic has made the journey quite different from what it would have been otherwise. The Healthzilla team has spent a lot less time at the Terkko Health Hub office space designated for the startup than they would have liked – and the same goes for unofficial networking with the other startups in the program.
“Naturally, the best we can do given the circumstances is to try to find the silver lining in the present situation, and put our focus and energy on things we can have a meaningful impact on,” Ranin says.
