Sigvards began his healthcare journey in 2016 by co-founding CastPrint with his ex-PwC colleagues. With no prior experience or background in tech or healthcare, he went through the entire journey from an idea to eventually creating a regulatory approved medical device company that today has helped more than 1,000 people from Europe, UK, and the US.
Seeing firsthand the limited support for upcoming entrepreneurs looking to create innovations in healthcare, Sigvards started to become more active in the startup ecosystem by mentoring and helping more healthtech entrepreneurs, which eventually brought him to Verge as our first Associate.
Prior to this, Sigvards was a consultant at PwC and during his time there, he was exposed to numerous businesses, starting from regional companies with staff below 50 and moving up to large international corporates with operations across several continents. Eventually, while moving up the corporate ladder, he specialized in banking and technology businesses.
Sigvards has a degree in business studies from the Riga International School of Economics and Business Administration (RISEBA).
