Digital healthcare specialists Mindwave Ventures has recruited a number of specialists across the business to support its growth objectives for 2021.
Founded by Kumar Jacob MBE in 2014, Mindwave was born out of the NIHR Maudsley BioMedical Research Centre (BRC) at the Maudsley Hospital. Over the last six years, the business has substantially grown from a team of two to an international team of 43, including a design and full-stack development team.
The business has recruited five new employees in the UK team over the last three months, including most recently Leeds based Chelsea Almond, who joined the team as Sales Administrator in January 2021. Chelsea has a wealth of experience in the healthcare industry from her previous role as Marketing and Communications Lead at One Medical Group. Her main role will focus on supporting new business opportunities and client management.
Diana Pulikoden has also recently joined the company as a Project Manager, Vijitharan Nageswaran as project support, Mark Irlam joins the design team, and Leah Harvie has taken on the role of Finance Assistant.
The Mindwave team has delivered a wide range of projects to health tech startups, NHS trusts, academia and charities including a Personal Health Record (PHR) platform, apps to support health research, a city-wide platform to help Londoners improve their mental wellbeing and a goal-setting tool for an employment service which supports those seeking work following mental health treatment.
Kumar Jacobs, founder of Mindwave Ventures said: “We are thrilled to have such a talented set of people join the Mindwave family. With a number of new projects in the pipeline from new and existing partners, our key focus for recruitment has been to find the best talent in the digital health sector.
“Last year highlighted the importance of digital health applications, so we look forward to continuing to support the NHS and our partners to provide the best quality service to their patients”.
