In the sixth week’s Deep Dive, Wisify shared their Portuguese cuisine and told us more about their startup, which has developed a portable body composition analysis caliper.
By Ricardo Moura, CEO, and Tiago Andrade, CTO
Wisify is a Spin-off of the University of Porto, in Portugal. Based on the technology created in the University, we developed the first smart skinfold calliper in the world – Lipowise. It is used to assess localized body composition, like body fat, in order to help professionals in sports nutrition to improve their athlete’s performance. Ricardo and Tiago are the founders, both coming from Portugal, married and fathers of 2 kids each. Ricardo has a background in Management, and Tiago has a background in Mechanical Engineering, with a specialization in automation and integration of different electronic technologies.
The lunch came from the unique restaurant that is considered Portuguese in Qatar – Nando’s. Our cuisine is very diverse like the traditional codfish, but since it wasn’t available we selected the traditional chicken “espetada”.
Background: To promote cultural awareness and bonding, every week, we asked one of the startups to deep dive into their culture by organizing a traditional lunch and to tell us more about their startup and journey.
