The Jury panel includes top investors in healthcare area, leading healthcare practitioners from hospital networks including Kamineni and Asian Institute of Gastroenterology and academics including lead advisers from Stanford University.

Lauding the startups and the technologies developed by them, Prof U B Desai, Director, IIT Hyderabad, said, “The Institute is proud to incubate startups that are coming up with products that will have a huge impact on the society. We are sure their ideas will have a lot of traction with Indian healthcare community. We look forward to more startups coming up with innovative products from the upcoming CfHE batches.”
