Description

What do you do when it feels like there are no solutions to manage your own health? 


 


In this episode, I interview the prolific Nadine Karadag, where we learn about her search for health and wellbeing which led her to launch Valeo, the latest startup in Dubai’s health technology space. 


 


The app promises its users a simple, personalized solution that allows them to schedule health tests, receive detailed results, and get well-rounded support from the best international wellbeing experts, all from the comfort of their own homes. 


 


Unlike the Valeo experience, Nadine’s own health journey was not that simple, and she says candidly:  “While going through difficult times personally and professionally, my health started to decline. Physicians tried to fix it with medication that made me feel even worse. I then tried functional medicine with high-profile practitioners from LA to Dubai, which turned out to be expensive and time-consuming, leading to no real results. This only left me with an extra layer of feeling like a failure.” 


 


We talk about the following: 


 


✅ Why she decided to take her health into her own hands 


✅ The need for personalized, holistic care in the Middle East


✅ Her competitive advantage, and why she decided to focus on this particular industry 


✅ How she met her co-founder and how they decided to launch this company 


✅ Her journey raising money, and how the product roadmap will continue to change as they grow and scale in the region
