GiveVision, one of Wayra UK’s alumni, wowed the judges at WIRED Health this week to win a prestigious pitching contest.
GiveVision, which adapts VR headsets to improve the lives of the visually impaired, was recognised by the WIRED judges over 13 other start-ups.
Stan Karpenko, CEO at GiveVision, said: “We were surprised and delighted to win, not least as the standard of the other pitches was absolutely phenomenal. I think the judges particularly liked that our tech is not only disruptive, but can have an impact on someone straight away – and this was recognised by the jury and the audience. After our pitch, we were connected with a large number of NHS Trusts and interested potential partners, so it was a hugely worthwhile experience for us.”
WIRED Health is the event for where healthcare is heading. It gathers hundreds of technology, pharma and medical influences together to look at the future of health.
From Wayra UK – well done to GiveVision!!
