IT’S a big day for a firm that specialised in diabetes research as it has a Royal appointment.
Rory Cameron, chief executive and co-founder of Gendius, based at Alderley Park, will be at St James Palace today, Wednesday, November 6.
He will pitch the company’s business idea to a panel including HRH the Duke of York as he looks for support for its mobile phone app Intellin.
Gendius is one of 12 shortlisted companies who will get three minutes to impress – with another 30 having one minute.
The company has already won through two rounds to get this far and now hope the panel and audience will be sufficiently impressed to offer support.
There is a networking event afterwards where Rory and his team can build further connections.
He said: “It is a huge opportunity, the biggest we have been given because of the people and contacts that will be there.
“We are hopeful that this will be a break-through moment.”
Intellin is an app that helps people with diabetes manage their condition and avoid complications.
The app gathers personal and disease-specific information that enables the program to identify the user’s personal areas of risk.
Rory says diabetes is the biggest cause of blindness, lower-limb amputation and kidney failure.
The company is currently in the process expanding from four to 10 people and it is hoped success in London will see this increase further.
As part of the pitch there is a people’s vote for the best company, visit https://peopleschoice.pitchatpalace.com/about to vote.
