She met a fantastic group of students who were actually doing various degrees at MIT and Harvard and they all wanted to do something with healthcare and tech. Eventually, they started a company called ClickDiagnostics, Inc. The concept behind setting up ClickDiagnostics:

  • In villages when people needed medical advice, they had to waste tons of time to go to the cities for advice.
  • However, through an app or web portal like ClickDiagnostics, they can easily get diagnosed by doctors from the cities.
  • So the idea was to create a network that could be used to connect any doctor remotely anywhere in the world.

It was an exciting phase of her life as she was doing it for developing markets like Pakistan and Bangladesh. Unfortunately, the idea did not go very successfully as, during 2006-2007, mobile devices were not as common as they are today.
