We are a Helsinki-based Finnish company that focuses on innovative healthcare solutions, providing best-in-class online services and tools for an active life style and wellbeing. ActiveMEDI was founded by a former Nokia business director, Alireza Hasanpour.
Alireza is an expert in mobile, consumer, and enterprise technologies with 22 years of experience. During his carrier he has been involved in early stage start-ups and companies and developed innovative solutions, for banking, insurance, etc. He developed the first online banking service for consumers in Oslo, Norway with best-in-class security standards.
Alireza worked in various organizations at Nokia (CIO office, Services, Markets strategy and Corporate development units) and was involved in latest Wellbeing strategy initiatives. In the summer of 2012, his father got ill and needed intensive care, not only from care professionals, but also the entire family. The biggest challenge was managing his daily care and communicating with the health professionals.
Living away from his father, and his Nokia background, encouraged him to further seek a solution for the challenges. This was the birth of ActiveMEDI, a solution to the current institutional and reactive healthcare system.
To make ActiveMEDI a reality and fill the gap in the market, Alireza needed to find the best talent and develop a good team. In January 2013, he found Jonathan Wiklund that was a perfect match for his vision.
Jonathan had recently come back from an exchange year in the US, where he was struggling with back-pain due to two herniated discs. While spending time in California he received good care for his back, but as soon as he came back to Finland he realized that the communication between doctors about his care was not working as it should.
Speaking to Alireza about his vision and plans for families and the management of care, it quickly became apparent to him that this was the missing piece of the healthcare systems.
Jonathan is a young energetic software engineer that has been working since then developing the ActiveMEDI service. As a co-owner and CTO, he has a central role in the development and currently takes care of the product development.
