 About: Sabrina Badir is a Biomechanics Engineer and the CEO of Pregnolia AG. 


During her PhD at ETH Zürich, she and her colleagues developed a device that measures the stiffness of the uterine cervix in pregnancy. This device can assist gynecologists in providing better patient care by helping predict the risk of premature birth. After her PhD, Sabrina was awarded the Pioneer Fellowship to translate this academic research into a medical device product. In 2016, with Francisco Delgado, she co-founded Pregnolia – an ETH Zürich Spin-off winning all three stages of Venture Kick – to bring the device to the market. Since then she has won the TOP 100 Swiss Startup Award in 5 consecutive years, represented the Swiss National Startup Team in Boston, and raised a total of CHF 10M in financing.
