WHAT WE'RE BUILDING
Pillpresso is an IoT-enabled medication dispenser that automates medication sorting, reminding and dispensing. The aim is to improve medication adherence, which has been identified by the WHO as a serious, global issue.
Selected from close to 100 ideas, our team won the top prize of S$50,000 in seed funding at Modern Aging, a business competition organised by NUS Enterprise and Access Health that focuses on developing solutions for the elderly.
One of the judges was Dr. William Haseltine, who is well known for his pioneering work on cancer, HIV/AIDS and genomics, and has been listed by Time Magazine as one of the world's 25 most influential business people.
Our team has received endorsement from several healthcare organisations, and is in discussions with them on a project collaboration.
