Company Snapshot

Jack Cheja recently passed away, but we will always remember him. Cheja was an Endeavor Entrepreneur but more than that, he was a member of the Endeavor family and an outstanding person.

During Endeavor’s selection process, we always ask entrepreneurs: “When you get older and look back in life, which would be your greatest achievements?”

Jack replied: “To have a loving family and a successful company.” With humility and a contagious smile, he not only achieved his goal but became an inspiration.

Rest in peace, Jack Cheja, and all our best thoughts for the Cheja family.

As the first Latin American company to target the neonatal care market, Medix specializes in neonatal incubators. Jack and Diego inaugurated a state of the art production plant in 2010.

Endeavor and Medix

The Entrepreneurs received support in the area of expansion, general strategy (through the local Padrino program), and marketing (through the University di Tella program).
