The excitement of mHealth continues. We started with the 2015 mHealth Trends in the first quarter and provided a platform for healthcare startups to present and demonstrate their exciting ideas, products and technology in the first half of the year. In this session, we will focus on the innovation in wellness and how this can help people changing to a healthier lifestyle. What are the new ideas and technology that can help people change their behavior like stop smoking, eat healthier, etc. What would be the market opportunities and the business model? How can this attract the investor and what would the VCs see these as the opportunities or just another technology in digital health?
Please come and join us for another exciting and educational night.
