Here we are with the last startup currently taking part in our Acceleration Program. So, sitting comfortably because we are going to present Memio, the startup that reminds the medication.

Memio is the startup that reminds “the right medication at the right time”.  Memiocall, the service offered by Memio, is a tailored reminder service that reminds people to take the right medication at the right time via text or voice messages. It is aimed to people that have to take multiple medications during the day but usually forget. Memio is now entering the B2B sector through a synergic collaboration with clinics and hospitals that will provide directly the memiocall service to their discharged patients free of charge.

The startup operates in Digital Health Care sector, which is rapidly growing at the global level, and has a great potential in terms of usefulness of the service provided: every year, 20 million people worldwide are hospitalized because they poorly follow their medical therapies. Only 3 out of 10 patients, after being discharged from the hospital, remember to take medication as prescribed.

Memio was born from the initiative of 3 young enthusiastic entrepreneurs, that strongly believe they found a solution to one of the great needs of modern society: follow the correct medical treatment on time. Roberta Musarò, CEO and Co-Founder, got the idea from a personal experience: two years ago, her father had an ictus because he didn’t follow correctly the medical therapies. “I never thought that from a bad personal experience could come something so good – says Roberta – something that can really help other people.” The team was then founded thanks to Innovaction Lab, the national competition for innovative business ideas. Before joining LUISS ENLABS, Memio participated in the Acceleration Program run by Startupbootcamp IoT & Data Tech in Barcelona between 2015 and 2016, and in October 2016 Memio also became part of Unicredit StartLab portfolio.
