A new start February 14, 2012

On early October 2010 I started working with Exodus S.A. in Athens, Greece, following my return from Germany. I was appointed as the coordinator of NEPHRON+, a multi-million, high-risk, ambitious EU research project aiming to help End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients with a wearable device for 24×7 haemodialysis. This period was challenging (moving in a completely new domain) and rewarding every time we achieved some next step towards this great vision. I feel grateful that I was given the chance to be part of this amazing consortium and I wish them the best of luck in the remaining two years of the project.

Tomorrow I’m stepping down from that position, ready to start chasing one more dream. I have an itch on my back that I need to scratch, it’s been there for a couple of years now and it just won’t go away. The time is far from ideal to start a company, but hey — no pain, no gain.

So wish me luck, and stay tuned for more information in the near future!

Many thanks to everyone for the wishes and the positive reaction 🙂 I’ll post news as soon as there are some. A private beta is hopefully not _too_ far!

Godspeed, Costas! All the best! And let us know what’s itching you – and how you want to scratch it 🙂

[…] I’m still in my youth is debatable, but two months later I resigned from my great job at the time to pursue a dream: Solving a small but real-world problem I had faced myself. There were many […]
