Engineering design student Nawal Behih won hundreds of dollars in three minutes with her stroke detection technology at a local pitch competition. A year ago, Behih never would have thought to start her own business.

“I don’t usually like to be put on the spot,” said the 25-year-old winner of Women Entrepreneurship’s 2016 Quick Pitch Competition.

Behih’s company HiNT (Healthcare Innovation in Neurotechnology) is developing a wearable monitoring device for high-risk stroke patients. Their stroke detection device would be worn at night and wakes a patient up to receive treatment quickly — an important part of minimizing stroke’s effects.

HiNT is an Innovation Factory client, Forge company, and a finalist in this year’s LiON’S LAIR competition. Read the full CBC Hamilton piece here!
