Over 50 innovations and start-up companies were showcased at NTUitive Homecoming 2016 on Friday (Aug 19) at the Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The event was attended by industry players, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, faculty and students.
NTUitive, NTU’s innovation and enterprise arm, has started and incubated 120 spin-off and start-up companies, filed 1,339 patents, and commercialised 170 technologies over the past three years.
MyDoc is one of the NTU incubated start-ups. The digital healthcare platform links patients directly to multiple healthcare providers such as general practitioners, specialists, and hospitals. It allows users to virtually consult a doctor or pharmacist through various means, including instant messaging. MyDoc also enables secure and efficient information sharing between providers about their patients.
Since its inception, MyDoc has secured S$3 million in funding from investors, including Spring Singapore.
Dr Koh Poh Koon, Minister of State for National Development and Trade and Industry, said he was pleased to see many of the start-ups headed by young entrepreneurs. He was the event’s guest of honour.
