Exhaling Innovation with PNOE

Apostolos Atsalakis and Panos Papadiamantis took a deep dive into healthtech and surfaced with PNOE, a startup that's breathing new life into diagnostics. Their collective inspiration? A realization that our breath holds as many secrets as our blood.

The journey of PNOE began in the realm of academia, where Apostolos's PhD work with sensor technology and Panos's expertise in product management synergized to create an innovative prototype: a non-invasive breath analyzer. This device, conceptualized through their collaborative efforts, could read our health like an open book. With just a 12-minute test, PNOE's device deciphers biomarkers to give a clear picture of our cardiopulmonary health and guide users towards better nutrition and exercise habits. Initially, Apostolos and Panos set PNOE's sights on professionals—gyms, dieticians, and therapists were the first to harness its insights.

Today, under their co-leadership, PNOE is enhancing the health of over 40,000 individuals, from elite athletes to those just beginning their wellness journey. The product, a testament to their combined vision, has become a trusted ally in facilities worldwide, helping over a thousand professionals tailor their services to each client's unique needs. Apostolos and Panos also share a commitment to education, with PNOE sharpening the skills of health experts.

In a field where complexity can be daunting, Aposto- los and Panos stand out as a dynamic duo. They're proving once again that Greek innovators don't just face hard problems—they solve them with ingenuity and collaboration.


To date, the company is being used by over 2000 businesses, top-tier health professionals and trusted by professional athletes, including NBA players, ecognized by the Financial Times as one of the top 50 of the Americas' Fastest-Growing Companies 2023 ( PNOE is a Y Combinator graduate and has raised over $10 million, actively growing on a global scale, with presence across Europe, the US and Latin America. Their growth is further supported by the diversity of their customer base, spanning from sports teams to gyms and hotels, as well as the overarching application of the company's breath analysis solution.
