Just like the variety program, AIMed’s Shark Tank also welcomes an array of business pitches, preferably around the area of healthcare and new technology. This year, startups are encouraged to detail their ideas in no more than 500 words. The competition closed on 15 November and the seven finalists were announced four days ago.
The main purpose of this contest is not only to provide a platform for innovators or game changers to showcase their ideas but also ensure that they materialize as potential collaborators and investors listen out for how they are about to make a different.
