Andrea goes on to share a very interesting story of how she and three other Biomedical Engineer discussed the future, and how they were going to change device manufacturing in Mexico and around the world.


Andrea Siller, Adriana Torres, and Alicia Hoyos, the founders of Bioana, were enjoying just a normal day in 2013. They were discussing the future, and visualized a future where every person has access to medical technology and medical products that can improve their health. They imagined being able to transform ideas into innovative and successful products using both their passion for health and skills in engineering and design. Discussing things further, they all decided to start a medical device development company, and they started it in a garage!


They have moved out of the garage, and into offices and laboratories. Andrea says since that inspirational day in 2013, normal days have become not so normal. They found some real challenges staring out, and found out very quickly, entrepreneurship life was difficult. However, all three were up to the challenge, and they all new one thing for sure that, no matter how hard  it gets, they all had something in common that kept them moving; they now had their new purpose.

Fueled by their motivation to overcome the initial challenges, and with the support of many people that shared their vision, Bioana soon became what it is today (no longer a company working from a garage). In the next three years Bioana developed 10 new medical devices, and were granted 2 patents and had 6 patents pending,  and achieved FDA approval for one of their products. Bioana started to grow and become a successful company. In 2017, Bioana and the founders received the National Entrepreneur Award in Mexico, which is the highest recognition granted by the nation to companies that have made a significant impact in the country.
