On December 6, 2018, EuroMENA held their annual Startup competition event, hosted in Beirut Digital District. The objective of the EuroMENA Award is to pinpoint the biggest issues in the region and see how technology can help improve them. To be eligible for the competition, the startup must address education, culture, discrimination, health, social development, or other pressing topics in today's society.
Spike was named as one of the six finalist teams for the competition. After various talks about the Startup Ecosystem and what could be improved in emerging markets and startups, the teams pitched. Once the intensive round of pitching was over, Spike was announced as the first place winner of $10,000, along with six months of consulting support.
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.
