Chris Tan makes his debut on Startup West as co-host, with Danelle, and they talk with John Barrington AM, co-founder and managing director of Artrya, an ASX-listed (‘AYA’) AI-driven healthcare tech company that is looking to tackle the global problem of heart disease.

Every 13 minutes, an Australian dies of a heart attack. 9 million die every year around the world. The company was set up in 2018, has since raised $60 million in various rounds, including an ASX listing in November 2021 where $40M was raised on a $105M valuation.

Go for it. Pin your ears back and go for it. If there is one word to sum it up for me, what it takes is, that word would be ‘persistence’. I think of that Calvin Coolidge quote: persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
