017 - "Feet First" with Ahmed Zobi
On the podcast this week, we had Ahmed Zobi, CEO of Syntr Technologies. Ahmed and I talk about jumping into Syntr Technologies feet first, what bootstrapping in medtech looks like, the grant submission process for funding, being a young CEO and figuring out where to trust your gut and where you need help, how Covid impacted his startup, leading with emotional intelligence, and where Syntr is going. Ahmed Zobi is the Founder and CEO of Syntr Health with experience in microfluidics and biomechanics, and has headed research and development, management, and grant submissions. He has successfully attained all funding and has guided the company towards 510(K) clearance and commercialization of the SyntrFuge System. Ahmed received his BS in Biomedical Engineering, specializing in micro and nanotechnology, from the University of California, Irvine, and recently received his EMBA from Quantic School of Business and Technology. Syntr Health Technologies, Inc is a start-up company that was founded by biomedical engineers and experienced surgeons. Together, we have developed and tested a processing device, the SyntrFuge™ System, for the microsizing of adipose tissue for body contouring. How microfat is processed is incredibly important to its viability. The SyntrFuge System utilizes the precision of automation to deliver dependable results every time. We are on a mission to empower practices to offer innovative and natural solutions for their patients.
