Founder of Koalaa: Soft Prosthetics Service, Nathan Macabuag joins Dominic Frisby and Juliet Oury on this week’s episode of Business Without Bullsh-t.

A born and bred East Londoner, Nathan’s career path started during his gap year as an Engineer at an automotive plant in Gloucestershire which led him onto eventually studying a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering at Imperial College London, after which he fell into the world of Prosthetics (fuelled by his nerd obsession with robotics and Iron Man) and developed a passion for wanting to make Prosthetics more accessible and affordable for everyone. In 2020, Nathan set up Koalaa - a virtual support service for people with limb differences around the world.

The three discuss exactly how and why Nathan came to start Koalaa; the difference between conventional prosthetics and Koalaa's design and how their business model is managing to be a profitable one at such an early stage. Nathan also opens up about his upbringing and how it inspired him to take his chosen career path and what he envisages as the future of Koalaa.

Nathan is one of the nicest and brightest people we've had the pleasure of talking to. Press play to find out why
