Hult Prize 2014: Healthcare

In 2014, six students from the Indian School of Business won the seed money for “Dox in a Box” – a solution that brings cost-effective healthcare to the world’s poorest by enabling them to self-diagnose and self-monitor chronic diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension. The winning team competed against 10,000 students, representing more than 150 countries and 300 universities.
