At times it’s very healthy for a company to look back and contemplate the journey traveled. It allows us all to remember where we come from, what led us to where we are now and to look ahead to the future, fearless of the changes that the market will bring.
Anniversaries are opportunities for recollections of the years gone by and positive reflections for the year ahead. As Medtep turns 5 years old, we still remember that day drinking lattes at the Starbucks in Rambla Catalunya, Barcelona. We were both in suits discussing issues Jacob’s father had regarding communication with his patients in the follow-up process between visits. We believed that, in helping Jacob’s father, we set the grounds to help others as well. And this is how Medtep was born.
Today we mostly remember the enthusiasm and the commitment we put up when we created our company in 2011, betting strong on an idea we strongly believed in, dedicating countless hours and efforts to shape it and make of it what it is today. Yet in spite and despite the odd stumbling blocks along the way – we have traveled through yet another year – together, supportive, encouraging and enduring.
All of us have learnt a lot since the beginning of Medtep: getting to know the health sector, taking risks and making mistakes, pursuing new goals, and most of all, to trust a team as excited and enthusiastic about the project as we are.
We don’t know what the next five years will have in tow for Medtep, but we are convinced our commitment to improve the platform will remain intact, so that it keeps on being useful to healthcare professionals and patients.
We look forward to another wonderful year – a time to build and strengthen forged relationships even further; a time to create and cherish even more shared memories and a time filled with milestones achieved.
