Twelve years ago, while baking muffins, Simon McMaster had an idea. He wanted to make healthcare easier and accessible to everyone. From there he created Footfalls & Heartbeats, a startup that manufactures smart fabrics that act as sensors. These sensors, now embedded in your clothes, can monitor yourself and your family's health and alert you if there is a problem.
Simon participated in our Health & Wellness program, meeting companies such as Ascension, Boehringer Ingelheim, and Johnson & Johnson. This helped him propel his startup forward, as meetings with these corporations could have taken years to get even his foot through the door
