June 6, 2013 –
Eko Devices, a startup company nurtured at the Skydeck incubator, was one of two Berkeley startups to win $100,000 in funding from Founder.org. Eko’s diagnostic device started out as a project in BioE 192, the senior capstone design course.
Eko, co-founded by CEO Conor Landgraf, who graduated in May 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in bioengineering, is developing a diagnostic smartphone app that records and analyzes cardiac sounds to help healthcare professionals more readily identify potentially life-threatening heart conditions. Eko Devices was one of only ten student startups across the country to win Founder.org’s package of financial support and mentoring.
