HealthTech Hackathon: 10 Teams Have Developed Digital Solutions For The Medical Field

3 teams interested in developing medicine through technology will continue to transform and improve their digital solutions in the HealthTech Acceleration stage! The ideas were selected during the HealthTech Hackathon, which brought together future doctors, students, biologists, entrepreneurs, startups, medicine and technology enthusiasts, but also all those interested in innovation and science. For 3 days, 10 teams exchanged experience, participated in mentoring sessions and increased their skills to develop solutions aimed at improving medical services. HealthTech Hackathon is part of the “HealthTech Vertical 2021” – a program dedicated to tech startups that develop solutions for the medical field and is organized by Startup Moldova in collaboration with the State University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Nicolae Testemitanu”, with the support of USAID and Sweden within the Tekwill project, other partners FreshBlood and SanoPass.

In the acceleration stage, the 3 winning teams will validate their products, using all the necessary means, support and expertise of specialists, both in the IT and medical field, to improve their technological products and to move on to the next stage – the piloting. At the end of the acceleration program, the participants will have the opportunity to test their solutions in practice.

"I have long been waiting for the chance to participate in a Hackathon that combines both my professional directions - medicine and IT. Here I had the chance to state my ideas and receive invaluable advice on market implementation and analysis. I hope the accelerator will bring me even more knowledge and experience”. Dascal Mihai, CoRLab Tech, 1st place winners.
"We are very lucky to have been invited to this event which gave us access and the opportunity to talk to valuable people and collect useful data for the validation and adoption of our project to the current needs of the market. Thank you so much for the organizers, mentors and trackers for their support and effort!! I also consider that this type of event gives a very important impetus for the future successful projects of Moldova.” Sergiu Motreac, MyID "I participated in the Hackathon for the first time; I was very satisfied and pleasantly surprised. I managed to be part of a very creative team, together we reached the top three finalists. I am very grateful to our tracker and mentors for invaluable advice, support and experience”.

Here I mean digital services, an individual approach, expertise, help and modern practices. The HealthTech Hackathon has brought together a community of people with ideas who are ready to adjust to be successfully implemented in the health field, and we are ready to provide all the tools and platforms needed to achieve these goals.”

Academician Stanislav Groppa, vice-rector for research at USMF: “It was an exceptional event, where the 10 teams presented themselves exclusively, with major involvement, offering important solutions with well-targeted strategies for digitizing the health system. We tried to offer them some advice and guidance through the involvement of mentors - specialists and valuable experts in medicine. Congratulations to the winning teams and at the same time we encourage everyone not to give up their ideas, because there are many funding opportunities”

Mary Nemciuc, Coordinator HealtTech Moldova: It is important for the Republic of Moldova to be aligned with global trends in the personalization of human needs in terms of improving the quality of life and digital connection with objects and surrounding organisms. Synergy between technology and medicine is inevitable, only so the provision of health services will be considerably improved.

These Startups Are Going to Make You Think Twice About Moldova

With most of the world’s investment capital focused in a few key places, markets such as Moldova often get overlooked. Situated between Romania and Ukraine, this small eastern European country with a little more than two million inhabitants, still has a young ecosystem full of potential.

The country’s geographical and political positions have made it a “virtual bridge” between the West and the East. Moldova has economic agreements with both the European Union (EU) and the Commonwealth of Independet States (CIS), allowing them certain leeways and benefits on both sides. The population is often multilingual which means that entrepreneurs from Moldova can serve many global markets and there is a strong diaspora in major hubs around the world. The combination of these factors makes up for an unique entrepreneurial system.

International organizations and investors have recognized the opportunities within the country and the local government is working on building an innovative ecosystem as well. Seedstars has been organizing local events within the Seedstars World Competition in the capital Chisinau since 2016. Every year startups from all around the country apply for a chance to pitch their solutions and win a ticket to the regional and global stage of the competition. Over the years, we had the chance to hear from the most promising entrepreneurs working to make Moldova a better place to live and work in and combat issues such as a rapid population decline and high unemployment rates. Here are some of the startups that were a part of the Competition and where they are now:

  1. Fentury Fentury was the first Moldovan winner of the Seedstars Chisinau local competition. It is a personal finance advisor app where users can manage all their accounts from a single place and receive proactive advice on areas that can be improved. Fentury supports over 2,500 banks and is used in 75 countries worldwide. Since the competition they have also pivoted towards a B2B product called SaltEdge which enables businesses to connect with end-customers’ bank accounts from across the globe and has been featured in The Fintech Power 50 Cohort Members and Influencers 2021.
  2. Retently Retently helps businesses increase their revenue by reducing churn and improving customer retention. They offer a variety of products for a better customer and product experience and have worked with over a thousand companies.
  3. Codifun Codifun provides online and offline solutions to educate youth code while gaming, using innovative learning methods to teach design, animation, developing, 3D printing and software testing. They have had over 9000 students so far.
  4. MedicalTourismReview This HealthTech startup is the biggest database of clinics and hospitals worldwide with over 5000 medical institutions from 109 countries in their database. MedicalTourismReview is helping patients find the most effective affordable and accessible treatments in a variety of medical fields by offering information and reviews, and is a place to reach international customers for clinics and hospitals.
  5. Shelfalytics The team behind this startup provides solutions for real time data analytics from the shelves with their modules, sensors and cameras, directly to producers, retailers, and distributors.
  6. Babymoon The winner of the second edition of the local competition was Babymoon, a startup that developed a smart baby carrier which enables parents to communicate with their child’s doctor, prevent illness, and optimize their parenting.
  7. Gustos Life Gustos Life is a wine ecosystem platform offering a variety of IT solutions to wine marketers, such as a mobile marketplace, SaaS solution that implements blind tasting by experts, a system for online management of your wine collection, tech solutions for organizing wine tastings etc. They have recently been recognized as one of the top startups in the wine industry.
  8. FunEasyLearn FunEasyLearn is a free and offline language learning platform that helps any user learn a foreign language from their mother tongue. They offer courses in 34 languages taught in 62 mother tongues. Using science and game-based methods they adjust the learning experience to personal interests, knowledge level and learning abilities of every user. The app has been downloaded 60 million times and has about a million active users every month.
  9. Staf.Online The 2020 local winner from Moldova was Staf.Online, a global job board that connects employers and job seekers in a transparent and accessible way. They offer jobs across the EU and in seven different countries.
  10. Fastboss OU Fastboss is developing an AI Voice Assistant APP that helps users generate business documents even when out of office by using automation. Their solutions help the sales team focus more on customers and spend 35 % less sales time.
  11. Smartest This online platform helps students and educational institutions accurately evaluate their knowledge and potential gaps in several school subjects. The platform can also pinpoint specific learning needs of a student and track their learning progress.

The variety and success of previous contestants shows that even though Moldovan startup ecosystem might still be developing, the potential is there and the local government and foreign partners are seeing entrepreneurship as the way forward . The 2020/21 Moldova Local Competition was supported by SDC’s Optim project. Optim “Opportunities through Technologies and Innovation in Moldova’’ is a project of Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation SDC, implemented by Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation.
This event as well as other related to developing entrepreneurship with Startup Moldova are organized with the support of developing partners USAID MoldovaGovernment of Sweden and in the framework of Tekwill project.

Campionatul de squash

Incepand cu 2018, Tekwill promovează stilul activ de viață, prin desfășurarea diverselor activități de sport, precum este Squash.

SQUASH-ul a fost inventat la scoala Harrow jurul anului 1830, când elevii au descoperit că o minge perforata de Rackets, “zdrobita” la impactul cu peretele, produce un joc cu o varietate mai mare de lovituri și soluții ce necesita un efort mult mai consistent din partea jucătorilor.

Pe data de 29 mai 2021 a avut loc primul turneu deschis de squash găzduit de Tekwill la categoriile Lady și M2.

În urma jocului, s-au ocupat următoarele locuri:

Categoria Lady:

 Locul 1 Vlad Ginga Club Kangaroo
