OpenDiagnostics wins London HealthTech Challenge

Congratulations to CGE Cultivator venture OpenDiagnostics for winning the 2017 London Healthtech Challenge, and the £10,000 Dhruv Batra Prize. Their entry focused on using paper-based cell free diagnostics to help address foot and mouth disease in cattle. Foot and mouth costs £6.5 – £21 billion per year in regions where the disease is endemic, and is a constant threat to subsistance and small scales farmers whose livelihoods are dependent on their livestock.

The HealthTech Challenge is a business idea competition hosted by the Healthcare Club of London Business School and the Deloitte Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at London Business School.
