About this Event

In collaboration with PwC Singapore’s Venture Hub, this four-part webinar series will explore how COVID-19 has impacted the development of the HealthTech industry.


COVID-19 has proven that innovation - particularly in the HealthTech industry - can scale rapidly in a short period of time. It draws tremendous attention to the complexities of delivering and enabling digital healthcare at speed, which can be challenging under normal circumstances.

As many healthcare technologies went from nascent to essential, new products and services are evidently emerging, providing optimum opportunities for HealthTech startups to innovate further and proactively challenge themselves to address the new demands. Join us to explore more about these opportunities and its challenges in a series of webinars with Dr Zubin Daruwalla, Health Industries Leader at PwC Singapore.

Explore how COVID-19 has impacted the development of the HealthTech industry and how startups have responded to the change in patient’s buying behaviour and care pathways.
