Among the Top 10 startups selected out of more than 350 applications, we were one of them and have successfully obtained the Best Marketing Award.
NTT Com Startup Challenge 2018 was organised by NTT Communications, Japan's largest telecommunication company, supporting the startup ecosystem in Asia with an opportunity for funding, access to the investor network and quality technological infrastructure.
It provided a platform for startups to connect with top speakers, investors, as well as their peers, giving valuable insights and experiences through the panel discussions along the competition.
From those outstanding 10 startups, DoctorOnCall became the winner of NTT Com Startup Challenge 2018 Malaysia and MallDash won the Best Innovation Award. As the winners, we were able to receive a total cash of USD 10,000 ICT facilities from NTT Communications, free use co-working space membership at Common Ground sponsored by MDEC and free marketing or code courses from Next Academy, as well as a trip to Japan to discuss strategic partnerships with NTT Communications Japan.
The world’s population is aging rapidly. It is considered as a common phenomenon in many Asia countries especially in Japan, that stands out among the rest, due to the huge proportions of their citizens more than 65 years of age.
We are glad to have the chance and team up with NTT to bring our Virtual AI Patient-Sitter System to Japan to help the elderly and healthcare facilities.
