Iker Casillas joins IDOVEN, the remote sports cardiology startup from Spain

We have some exciting news to share with you.                                

Iker Casillas has joined IDOVEN as an investor supporting our remote, artificial intelligence based, digital sports cardiology project. With the common objective of helping to prevent heart attacks and other heart problems in individuals and sportspeople at any level.                                 

As you know, a year ago Iker Casillas the iconic Real Madrid and Porto goalkeeper, suffered a heart attack while in training, hence his desire to join the project.                                 

"A year ago, my life changed. I am now recovered, but I am more aware than ever of the importance of taking care of your heart. I recently learned about the IDOVEN project, contacted the team and after several conversations, it was clear to me that I wanted to support and be part of this project." says Iker.                                

Through this alliance with IDOVEN, Iker Casillas joins the Spanish business community and shows his commitment to innovation and technology as a means of preventing heart problems and facilitating the delivery of sports cardiology online to any home, anywhere.                                

Iker adds, "All athletes, regardless of level, are exposed to injuries and medical problems, including heart problems. I am convinced that doing my bit to help the Spanish business fabric, specifically in the areas of health and sport, is a safe and valuable investment. Our future is digital and investing in enterprise and Spanish talent is fundamental for small startups to become a reality in the medium and long term".                                

It is a pleasure for us to welcome Iker Casillas to the team. We could not have found a better ally: due to his sporting career and having experienced a heart problem first-hand, he is undoubtedly the best placed to understand the importance of what we do.                                 

¡Bienvenido, Iker!
