When the Connected Health team heard about the Publicis Groupe commitment to foster digital entrepreneurship and support 90 promising start-ups and ideas, we engaged our network of startups, venture capitals and innovators in the connected health space.
We are proud to share that two of the companies we’ve recommended and mentored have been shortlisted.
NiNiSpeech came to us through our relationship with Philly Start Up Leaders and one of their leading VCs. We liked the solution and felt there was a string market need globally. NiNi Speech enables people who stutter to take control over their speech, using unique mobile technologies.
The second company is Prevnos Technologies. Michael Leis, SVP of Social Strategy, and I met with Prevnos via our partnership with Dreamit Ventures and advised them on their brand narrative and how their brand takes shape and grows on social. Prevnos also came in and met with several senior members of Publicis Health, Digitas Health, and Evolvr.
One of the best cures for cancer is early diagnosis. Prevnos hopes to revolutionize early detection with a new model for cheaper, less invasive and faster diagnosis of many cancers.
We hope to see both NiNi Speech and Prevnos Technologies flourish, along with many other smart ideas later this month at Viva Technology.
