More than 3 billion people in developing economies are uninsured and thereby have little to no financial safety net in case of accidents or misfortune. DataDrivenFinance’s ambition is to ‘open the mass market’ of insurance in Kenya and provide insurance coverage to a minimum of 2 million Kenyans within 3-5 years, approximately 4 % of the total market. For those privileged with (high-end) insurance products, Kenyan underwriters spend between 40%-55% of the collected premiums on administration of their policies. That is enormously ineffective, and a clear indication that traditional insurance workflows will be too expensive for the low-income population. By use of mobile technology the administrative cost will significantly be reduced. Jan Martin Hunderi is the CEO of DataDrivenFinance. Read more about DataDrivenFinance on their webpages.
Picterus is developing an app that can diagnose jaundice in newborns. This will make parents able to safely monitor jaundice from home. The vision is to eliminate jaundice as a health issue throughout the world. Currently, more than 100.000 newborns die from jaundice every single year, much due to the lack of cheap diagnostic systems. In addition, jaundice is a cause of a lot of stress and anxiety for parents in high income countries, as they are left to monitor jaundice on their own, and often must travel several times back and forth to hospitals just to check on their child’s jaundice. Our app will give parents the ability to safely monitor jaundice from home while at the same time making healthcare workers in developing countries able to save lives. It works by taking pictures of the child with a color calibration card placed on the child’s chest. This app can be sold either to hospitals, which can save money if parents use our app, or directly to the parents. Gunnar Vartdal is the CEO of Picterus.
