Winners of start-up contest

September 27, 2015, Bengaluru, DHNS 1:11 IST
Two budding startups – MedCync and The Climber - were adjudged winners of the Rs 10-lakh funding prize of IIMB’s Bzz Wings start-up contest, 2015.

MedCync provides a support network for patients suffering from various diseases and helps doctors connect with healthcare providers through an app. The Climber is a youth-driven organisation that helps students find and pursue their passions. They will be incubated by the N S Raghavan Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning at IIMB.

“My mother has Parkinson’s disease and my mother-in-law is a cancer survivor. So, I know the kind of situation and problems faced in similar positions, whether it be finding a support group or educating patients,” said Dr Anupama Gangavati, co-founder, MedCync, who is a Geriatric consultant with Apollo Hospital.

It is such experiences that gave her the inspiration to start MedCync. Presently running as a pilot, involving a hospital and 10 healthcare providers, the co-founders of the company will try and get the “right product-market fit,” using their funding.

The Climber employs a number of initiatives such as interactive sessions with students, youth-mentoring-youth programmes to try and push their aim forward to help students pursue their passions. They already have mentored 10,000 students from 34 schools and five colleges.
