E-health startup EMGuidance has been named winner of the South African leg of the global Seedstars World competition, and will now go on to pitch for US$500,000 in funding at the global final in Switzerland.
EMGuidance emerged the winner, earning a place at the global final in Switzerland next year. The startup has solved a critical problem for medical professionals by aggregating medical content from regional experts into one mobile app.
“We had a pleasure of meeting talented entrepreneurs from different cities and backgrounds in South Africa, and seeing them do such an amazing job representing themselves and their startups on this big South Africa finals stage,” said Fanny Dauchez, associate for Seedstars World Africa. “We look forward to coming back again next year, and working with the South African ecosystem enablers to empower startups and give them tools to take their business to the next level.”
