MPAL Aims to Connect the Sports Medical World

Posted On April 26, 2020

Insite Malta is in collaboration with JAYE Malta to promote the innovative Start Up Companies you all need to hear about!

Meet MPAL, A JAYE Start Up Company made of 5 students attending the University of Malta. The team is formed by Kurt Shaw, Gianni Brincat from FEMA, and Megan Montebello, Michael Pulis and Ryan Vella from the Department of AI.

Even though participating in the JAYE Start Up Company Program is part of their course as a compulsory study unit, the students intend to learn more about what it entails to create your own idea and have it ready in the market to be sold and distributed. And, of course, enjoy the experience of being young entrepreneurs.

They are selling an app with the purpose of connecting the sports medical world. This is basically an app where all athletes, along with therapists, sports doctors or any other sports users, will be able to store all their medical information. The aim of the app is to store all of this information about athletes and their injuries which will help them gain a better understanding of their body and also have a record of any injuries. They are mainly targeting the sports community in Malta at first. 

What makes their app so unique is the fact that the only systems that are similar to their’s are all owned by institutions such as Mater Dei or high end professional sporting entities but these only have internal systems while the athletes will have no record for themselves.

When asked if they are going to continue the Start Up after the program, they enthusiastically answered yes! If everything goes according to plan, they are planning to launch MPAL after the program is finished.

Make sure to follow the JAYE Awards on the 3rd of May at 18:00 via Facebook Live to see which team take the title of StartUp of the Year and represent Malta at the European Enterprise Competition 2020!
