This year post-CES, ExitEvent wanted to showcase NC talent that is disrupting the rest of the nation. We start with a new partner of Durham-based Validic, an example of the type of device manufacturer making the startup grow so quickly.

Meet Qardio, a San Francisco and UK-based wearable device manufacturer that is changing the healthcare industry. 
Qardio recognizes that people want to take control of their own health. And they want to do it with new, user-friendly personal devices rather than the old-fashioned doctor’s office ones. Qardio is betting that the devices of the future will integrate modern design with accurate medical-grade technology and sensors to collect and deliver information in real-time. 
Connectivity is also key, and that’s where Validic comes in.
