Diabeloop, a company focused on collective intelligence

“At Diabeloop, there are 2 core elements that motivate people on a daily-basis. The first one is teamwork. We feel great pride when we work together to accomplish challenging goals. The second one is about seeing our impact on people living with Type 1 diabetes. When they say: “It’s extraordinary, you have changed my life”, it gives us pride, energy and motivation to continue. That is why we get up every morning!” – Erik Huneker, co-founder and CEO of Diabeloop.
