President and CEO, Peytec
Peyman helped develop an image processing software tool that automatically detects tumours and other abnormalities from MRI and CT scans in 5 seconds – a massive reduction from the previous 45 minutes. This vastly reduces the time patients must wait for a diagnosis!

Tips for Success
- Make goals: Create a few measurable milestones for yourself as you start your business or test your idea. Success requires planning, so think hard about how to make your dreams a reality.
- Make mistakes: this is one of the best ways to learn. “If you have an idea, just go for it. You’ll have mistakes, but continue working hard and it will be rewarding in the end”, Peyman says. Don’t be thrown off-course – mistakes always dot the path to success!
