How Neuphony was Born? - The Story
Neuphony comes from a very personal experience for our team, as the company is dedicated to Ria’s sister, Pankhuri who passed away in 2016, due to a rare brain infection.
Pankhuri was admitted to Stroke ICU within a week of being diagnosed with a rare brain infection. In November 2016 after fighting for 6 months she passed away.
During all that time, not knowing what was happening inside her brain was something Ria couldn’t digest and understand.
She started Neuphony with her co-founder, Bhavya Madan to make sure no one suffer through the pain that she did, just because of lack of information related to brain health.
