​When the pandemic hit, Senscio needed to do a hard pivot and deliver all its health management services virtually. New technology and operations were required. “Equity investors wanted to wait to see us succeed with the pivot. MTI came in at that critical juncture with debt financing that carried us through to when we were able to raise an equity round. MTI believed in our fundamental technology to power chronic health management with AI. MTI believed in our ability to gain traction in the market. With MTI’s timely support, we are now the market leader in effective self-management of chronic conditions, resulting in better health and fewer hospitalizations.” – Piali De
