Pocket Anatomy Wins Big In Amsterdam
A medical software firm based in NUI Galway's incubation centre claimed top prize in a startup competition run at one of Europe's top tech gatherings. Pocket Anatomy was selected ahead of nine other startups after an on-stage business pitch at The Next Web Conference in Amsterdam.
The Boost startup competition winner made its pitch in front of over 2,500 web, technology and business leaders at the conference. Pocket Anatomy's chief executive, Mark Campbell, collected the Boost award. It is the second big coup for the startup, after it recently joined a handful of European companies selected to join the prestigious New York-based StartUp Health Academy.
Pocket Anatomy designs 3D visual software to facilitate doctor-patient diagnoses communication and the promotion of personal healthcare understanding. Its iOS healthcare apps are already used by up to 250,000 students and educators, as well as 50 educational institutions in the US.
The startup is currently based in NUI Galway's Business Innovation Centre, which provides work space, meeting facilities and financial advice to startups and NUI Galway spin-out companies. (May 2014)
