Blaine Mathieu, Pratexo: Exploring the possibilities of the edge

Someone standing at the edge of a cliff.

I heard that the company was created when a health care company approached the founders about a challenge they had. Do you know what that challenge was?

I know that story and there are a few origin stories that are all somewhat related.
