Andressa Lacerda

Synex Medical

Growing a 2 person startup focused on water purification you founded in your living room at age 24, to the 50 person operation Noblegen, known for creating unique, ground-breaking, nutrition enhancing oil and protein food additives that are GMO-free and incredibly pure all by the age of 30 is pretty special. Add in raising a Series B round of $25 million in equity, always maintaining a sharp focus on practicing sustainability, and doing it all from the small Ontario town of Peterborough, it becomes clear that Andressa is both a pretty special leader and a problem solver to be reckoned with – something she takes with her into a new career at another start-up focused on real time medical diagnosis through wearable tech.
