The story of the name Eiira
The name Eiira comes from Eir, the goddess of healing in Norse mythology. Eiira is a modern goddess who helps people become healthier and live longer.
We have witnessed people among friends and families pass away prematurely because of inherited diseases. Those death are preventable! Today, there is no easy access for people like you and me to be tested for any inherited risks and be given measures to counter them. In 2020, we, a group of four AI nerds in collaboration with genetic experts from Karolinska, decided to take matters into our own hands and to create access for people to know their genes and provide tools to make the best out of their genes.
Thanks to the support from Vinnova, ALMI and Sting incubator, and the team’s hard work, we have launched the first products for hereditary cancer prevention. This is the first step in our audacious journey to help people live healthier and longer regardless of who and where.
