According to Mr. Shreekant Pawar, the Co-Founder of the app, “We have been working on this concept for four years now. The cause is very close to our hearts; in our crowd funding campaign earlier this year the global market validated our idea by helping us raise $18.945. So, after all the hard work and all this time, we are very happy to announce the worldwide launch of Diabeto”.
On what has made this app unique? Pawar explains, "There are many apps available, but none gives a 360-degree management solution. We are actually one step closer in becoming a complete management unit from home".
