Company Develops Mobile App for Stroke Victims
Calgary Herald - Published October 14, 2012
Throughout Morgan Moe’s entire undergraduate degree at the University of Calgary, she was a volunteer at the Association for the Rehabilitation of the Brain Injured. As a volunteer, she developed a passion for helping stroke patients as well as people with traumatic brain injury. From there was born an idea for a business venture while at the same time helping people.
“StrokeLink is mobile application to empower patients and their caregivers throughout their entire care journey by providing both knowledge and tools to help them regain their independence,” says Moe, co-founder of the company and its chief clinical innovation officer.
StrokeLink was founded as a venture of The Next 36, Canada’s entrepreneurial leadership initiative. Students were put into teams of four, generally multi-disciplinary, and provided with seed capital as well as mentorship to help launch a technology venture.
