Business idea in short

“GI sensing system”, the real-time monitoring of postprandial GI tract functions for the detection of Gut-Brain Axis-related healthiness & diseases

Social issue to tackle | Business concept

I will create the “GI sensor system” that monitors various postprandial gastrointestinal functions in real time, visualize the measurement results with the App so that each person can easily grasp them. This “system” will contribute to the appropriate solutions for “healthy eating behavior”, “optimization of dietary satisfaction timing”, and “early detection & treatment of Gut-Brain-Axis-related diseases” in the world.


As a GI specialist, I have been warming up this idea for many years since I was a M.S. student, and now the timing is ready for speeding up and realizing this idea. Focus on this program as a start of my life work, acquire an entrepreneurial mindset, utilize the expert connections, accelerate the realization speed of the “GI sensor system” to solve the above Gut-Brain Axis-related problems.
