Nneile Nkholise founded IMed Tech as a means of hiring young female mechanical engineers to design breast and facial prostheses for cancer and burn victims. She intends to make available quality artificial replacements that would make life easier for those who are in need of medical prostheses but most importantly, that they can get the medical assistance they need conveniently and cheaply.
“What makes it different is that we apply digital technology and 3D Printing which are some of the most important aspects within the Fourth Industrial Revolution that Africa needs to develop a lot more. And also, to find lasting solutions to some of the medical challenges we face within Africa.”
Being one of the Forbes 30 under 30 2018 list, she has this to say; “It was great to know that I was among some of the top entrepreneurs in Africa. As entrepreneurs, we often forget to applaud our accomplishments and that moment helped realize that I was doing something good for Africa, and I should grow pride in the impact that I am making.”
