Founded in 2014, Checkpoint Cardio has developed patented wearables that allow constant streaming of cardiac and other significant biometric data, providing a whole system for online diagnostics, prevention and emergency reaction for cardiovascular diseases. It is one of the most avant-garde telemedicine systems for the transmission and monitoring of reliable medical data in real time.

EIT Community support
Boris Dimitrov, CEO and co-founder of Checkpoint Cardio, was nominated for the EIT Venture Award in 2018. Checkpoint Cardio joined the EIT Digital Accelerator programme in 2017 and was able to secure an implementation contract from a leading university hospital consortium.
We are grateful for EIT Digital Accelerator teams supporting us in the development of this deal and for the series of introductions already made this year. Without EIT Digital Accelerator and personal engagement of the access to market and access to finance teams, Checkpoint Cardio would never have been, where we are now.

In Bulgaria, we have a saying that it is often the darkest before the dawn, and we have had to overcome numerous dark times during the development of our business, but we are now able to make a real difference to people’s lives.
