We’re back

The Health Hackathon is back. Second Edition!

Objectives

  • Demonstrate collaboration between different sectors within the healthcare ecosystem to solve problems together and leverage on cutting edge technology
  • Cultivate innovative ideas with direction from the right subject matter experts to ensure that the solution is scientifically and medically sound.
  • Be a platform where new talents can be discovered and be a congregation of diverse minds.

Malaysia is a rapidly aging population. So there is a need to focus on this population

We have identified several areas of need

  1. Delivery of care
  2. Social Connectedness
  3. Patient tools and Home Based Care

iLabs is a unique, not-for-profit concept where Sunway University, Sunway Group, and Sunway Ventures (Sunway’s Corporate Venture Capital arm) work closely together in a collaborative space to foster entrepreneurship and stimulate market-driven innovations. And the it does not stop there. We are also syncing with the wider start-up ecosystem in Malaysia and abroad through collaborations and strategic partnerships, to enable entrepreneurs to scale their business faster.

Bring your hardware to life at the new iLabs Makerspace, available to all our Health Hackathon participants.

Only shortlisted projects will be allowed to present on January 19, 2019.
