TechEmerge Health Innovation Summit – A Path-Breaking Platform for Building Business Partnerships between Tech Companies & Corporations by IFC

Views: 7.2K

eHEALTH, as one of the leading health magazines focusing on the convergence of all stakeholders operating in the Indian healthcare ecosystem, has always been fascinated by the entire concept of ‘Start-Ups’ & the business of lending financial support to start-ups with their ‘out-of-the-box’ ideas and innovations capable of bringing complex medical treatments or procedures at doorsteps, or better to say at our fingertips. We have been keeping close watch on start-ups, especially those that stand out because of their long-standing goals and well-researched business models that can fetch results and excellent customer experience. Therefore, when our Chief Executive Office Ravi Gupta categorically instructed us to visit ‘TechEmerge Health Innovation Summit’, we were all excited to become part of this event that has the potential to become a trendsetter in the entire healthcare ecosystem. Here, Assistant Editor Kusum Kumari presents the details  of the event.  


TechEmerge Health Innovation Summit was organised at the Leela Palace, New Delhi, India

International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank Group offering lasting solutions for development, on June 15 kicked of the first-of-its-kind TechEmerge Health Innovation Summit in the capital city New Delhi of India to ensure matchmaking between the technology companies from around the world with the corporations in the emerging markets.
