Smarter Diagnostics Entrepreneur of the Year at the University of Warsaw

Emerging from ICM University of Warsaw, Smarter Diagnostics has been chosen as the Entrepreneur of the Year UW 2023 in the Start-up of the Year category. “Our dream is for our vision of using AI in imaging diagnostics to succeed in the market. We want to achieve success, stop being a start-up, and operate as a thriving company. We want our idea to spread worldwide,” comments Bartosz Borucki, who received the main award from Adam Struzik, Marshal of the Masovian Voivodeship, and Aleksandra Szwed from the Department of Regional Development and European Funds at the Masovian Marshal’s Office.

“At Smarter Diagnostics, we develop a platform for the prevention of sports injuries. We primarily utilize magnetic resonance images and analyze them using artificial intelligence methods. The software we create allows for objective diagnostics as well as accurate recommendations for users to support their health protection,” explains Dr. Norbert Kapiński, Co-founder and CTO of the company, an AI & Computer Vision specialist at ICM.

“The University of Warsaw has had a tremendous impact on our development and the development of our company. Personally, I have spent over 20 years at the University, including at the demanding Faculty of Physics, after which no challenges are difficult anymore. We started with research conducted at the University, received support in the commercialization processes of technologies developed at ICM UW, as well as funding in programs supporting companies at the incubation stage, such as the Innovation Incubator or the FIRE program,” summarizes Bartosz Borucki, Co-Founder and CEO of Smarter Diagnostics, as well as the long-time Head of the Artificial Intelligence and Image Analysis Team in Medical Diagnostics at ICM UW.
