Diliara Lupenko founded Impress in 2019 with Vladimir Lupenko and Khaled Kasem to offer an affordable and personalised invisible orthodontics service that could be monitored via an app that the patient and the professional could permanently track. .

Last year, tecmed closed a series A round worth 41 million euros, making it the third largest operation in the history of the BioRegion. The startup was able to use this financing to open its own aligner factory in Barcelona, one of the largest of its kind in Europe, and diversify its service with clinics specialising in treatments for youngsters and teens. The company now has over 120 clinics in Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom, France, Portugal, Switzerland, Germany and Ukraine.

In this video interview, the business owner shares her personal background and the idea behind Impress, reveals how she was able to establish a team involved in the project, and gives an insight into the future challenges of the company.
