Medical doctor and engineer Dima Gazda, CEO and co-founder at Esper, had an idea that people can create thousands of years worth of life for other people, directly or indirectly. This can be anyone: a doctor who prolongs the lives of patients, an accountant who works for a company that fights air pollution, or a software developer who builds an application for a better posture or sleep. Ultimately, their actions let people live longer.
Looking for his own way to move the needle, Dima discovered that electronic implants have the biggest potential to make a maximum impact — to create billions of years worth of life for people globally. Through deep research in a variety of areas, he identified the prosthetics industry as the perfect environment and ecosystem for electronic implants to emerge. Electronic implants need big wearables for charging, data collection, and processing — and prostheses are ideal for that, with millions of users worldwide. So, by helping these millions, by bringing them devices of the right architecture, we can unlock the technology stack necessary for electronic implants and, thus, help billions of people in the future. With this idea in mind and heart, Dima co-founded Esper* Bionics as a five-person technological startup in 2019. Today, it is a New York-based award-winning engineering company of twenty people developing human enhancement devices for a brighter future for humankind.
