Viktoria Prantauer

Hippo AI Foundation

Co-Founder/ Chief Patient Officer

Viktoria is the world’s first breast cancer patient who has set her heart on providing everyone with access to the same level of care she received by dedicating her life to the development of an open-source medical artificial intelligence. 
To realize her vision, she collaborated with the young Hippo AI Foundation, a nonprofit organization based in Berlin, to launch, which aims to become the largest and most comprehensive open data set on breast cancer pathology.
The intense collaboration led her to join the Hippo AI Foundation as a co-founder. Hippo AI brings people and data together to establish artificial medical intelligence as a digital commons. In 2020 and 2021, she was part of an expert jury for the Trustworthy AI Call of the Austrian Business Service. In 2021, she won the “Mutmacherin Award” from ApoAdHoc and the German AI Startup Award from Axel Springer and Welt with the Hippo AI Foundation.
Since her diagnosis, she has advocated for patient-driven innovation and open knowledge and mentors several startups focused on digital health and patient integration. Viktoria is a communications and business development specialist with deep expertise in building startups and communities from scratch. She has a master’s degree in digital marketing and several other post-university educations.
