Supporting today's parents feat. Swati Matta (BCS '10)
Show Notes

When Swati Matta (BCS '10)  came to Waterloo to study bioinformatics, and knew that she wanted to work in health care. She also wanted to start a company someday. 

Some young, ambitious grads jump into their dream job right away. Getting thrown into the thick of things can be great. But for Swati, it was better to take one step at a time. After years of work in the health tech world, and an MBA, she was ready to take the leap and start her own company.

Her startup is a direct result of this patient approach. Born out of her expertise in digital health and her frustrating experience with pre-natal research, Koble is a platform for expecting and new parents, offering vital services and credible information. Swati joins the podcast to talk about each step in her career journey, and her future hopes for family health care.
