Special Features of Project

DERBI Foundation had shared its curated pipeline of growth stage solutions with the steering committee to select as per the mandate or interest of the objectives. The steering committee selected four healthcare innovations to offer the grant of 77 lakhs, after strict scrutiny. The details of the innovations are as follows:

  • Savemom Technologies Private Limited - The company provides personalized preventive healthcare to pregnant women at the doorstep using AI & IoT-enabled healthcare solutions. They aim to reduce maternal & infant mortality by providing timely and appropriate care during the first 1000 days to the mother and the baby. This solution includes both hardware devices and software programs.
  • Vidcare Innovations Private Limited - The company is developing easy-to-use, portable health tests to make diagnostic testing convenient, accessible, and available to anyone, anywhere, anytime. This enables patients, their families, and healthcare workers to monitor existing health conditions and screen for infections at the patient's home to help doctors make much faster clinical decisions. Their first product focuses on hypothyroidism testing which is a major healthcare challenge estimated to affect more than 15 crore Indians.
  • Ibrum Technologies Private Limited - The company is developing an AI-based Point of Care Pneumonia screening device for rural settings. Their vision is to precisely diagnose early pneumonia cases to prevent the casualties. Their technology is bridging the gap between physical and laboratory diagnosis.
  • Backyard Creators Private Limited - Backyard Creators are solving the problem of expensive open skull surgeries required for implanting hearing aids, by building a small device that would provide magnetic stimulation behind the ear and is also cost-effective and eliminates the need for expensive surgeries.

These innovations are on their way to making real differences in society through that “one idea”. By joining hands with HDFC Bank, DERBI can support innovations by providing them mentoring, connections, pilots, and funding which will lead them towards achieving their vision. This partnership will fulfill DERBI Foundation’s urge to work towards promoting and supporting innovation and HDFC Bank’s aim to give back to society in a meaningful way.
