SCENARIO & BACKGROUND
Due to the current emergency state generated by the COVID-19 many healthcare systems around the world have been severely impacted. Survival during times of crisis means change, transformation and adapting to a different way of life; but how can we adapt to a future without improving the present?
In order to solve the current health and social issues derived from COVID-19, as well as future epidemics, Beat the Vid is looking for start-ups and entrepreneurs from any technological background with technological projects aimed at improving the prevention, detection, treatment, monitoring and supply logistics relating to the virus.
Together, we aim to not only monitor the physical and emotional state of patients throughout the pandemic, but also support our healthcare systems and employees around the world that risk their lives every day to fight the spread of the virus.
Beat the Vid seeks to identify and connect with the best agents in the healthcare ecosystem in order to implement solutions with the greatest impact. We invite you to participate and help us defeat the COVID-19 pandemic.
