Unitus fund’s latest StartHealth winners spotlight rise of medical tech innovation in India
Wednesday, July 5, 2017
Unitus Seed Fund, one of India’s best-known impact venture funds that backs early-stage startups innovating for the masses, has named two winners of its StartHealth startup contest, which show medical tech innovation is taking off in India.
Winning StartHealth, now into its fourth edition, has become a badge of serious recognition for early-stage startups in the health care sector and previous winners have valuable innovations to their credit. This year, Ahmedabad-based Bioscan Research has emerged as the winner for its affordable, handy and non-invasive screening tool for early detection of intracranial bleeding, at the point-of-care.
Nanosniff Technologies, which has built a microcantilever-based (think of one prong of a tuning fork or a diving board, but a million times smaller that changes its vibration when its weight changes) bio-sensing system which can detect Myocardial Infarction, was judged a close second.
