Why do this?

COVID-19 has disrupted many startups’ businesses.  Singapore’s month-long “circuit breaker” period presents an opportunity for entrepreneurs to innovate and solve real healthcare delivery gaps that have been exposed by COVID-19. These gaps present real Digital Health business opportunities for startups to pivot their businesses in the new normal post-COVID-19.

Singapore is a perfect innovation test-bed; as seen in the rapid implementation of measures to contain COVID-19. Therefore, we are presenting this Digital Health challenge, that includes a reward, opportunities for business ventures, investments and exits, to entrepreneurs.

The gap

The elderly are more vulnerable to the effects of COVID-19. Our current system of dispensing their regular medicines to them in person puts them at risk of COVID-19 and other infections. 

In rapid aging society like Asia, we ask…

“How can we deliver medicines more efficiently?”
