Flavia Wahl: “The idea of being an entrepreneur started with a trip around the world”


iBreve develops self-care solutions that focus on prevention & promote healthy living. It was founded by two former Google employees aiming to create a world free of stress related diseases. iBreve’s new patent-pending wearable technology analyzes respiratory patterns in real-time, enabling market applications for stress reduction, remote monitoring and chronic disease management. iBreve was one of the European projects chosen to participate in the 1st edition of CRAASH Barcelona, the acceleration program organized by Biocat in collaboration with CIMIT (Boston) which is part ofthe bootcamp programs run by EIT Health. (Biocat started in 2020 the 3rd edition of CRAASH Barcelona. You can read here the iBreve's experience in CRAASH Barcelona). Flavia Wahl is the co-founder of iBreve.


Why did you want to be an entrepreneur?

I have always been passionate about solving complex problems and taking responsibility, but it all really started with a trip around the world, especially in India. My co-founder and I were fascinated how people integrated breathing exercises in their everyday routines which sparked our inspiration to bring this knowledge to the western world. Medical and scientific validation brought us to work together with renowned hospitals. Google equipped us with skills to lead a technology business, reach customers across borders and a unique network to tap into. So we began iBreve’s missionto make prevention and improving well-being easy.


What is the most important strategic decision you’ve made so far?

My most important decision was creating a born-global company. If you found a company like ours, you are international from day 1. This is great, but also challenging at the same time.


What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?

“You can achieve everything you set your mind to.”
