This November, TechCrunch launched their annual Disrupt event in Berlin. In preparation for the event, thousands of Startups were screened to be part of the Battlefield competition in the event. As fierce as competition was, Spike Diabetes Assistant was selected as the top 2% to be one of the twelve semi-finalists for TechCrunch Berlin 2018.
Preparation was intensive- it consisted of training sessions, Q&A training, pitching sessions, feedback from other startups, and more. The pitch was six minutes long, including a demo of the App on the market, with a three minute Q&A from the judges.
After a stress-fueled round of pitching, Spike was announced as one of the top five startups in the Battlefield!
What We Do
At Spike, we have one main mission- to facilitate the lives of our fellow diabetics, and give them a user-friendly, seamless, and smooth experience throughout their everyday life
With Spike, the work is done for you. Spike is a mobile assistant that helps diabetics better manage their diabetes. Spike monitors the patient's daily behavior and jumps in with reminders and tips when needed about insulin, food, activity, etc.. In addition to that, Spike stores the patient's data for further analysis and/or sharing with doctors and caregivers. The aim is to make diabetes management pain-free.
