10 pioneering health-tech start-ups set to have a global impact

The World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers of 2019 lists 10 innovative health companies tackling global healthcare issues.

The Technology Pioneers of 2019 represent a collection of 56 early to growth-stage companies identified by the World Economic Forum (WEF) as trailblazers of new technologies and innovations.

Among this year’s pioneers are 10 health companies poised to have a significant impact on business and society with their cutting-edge ideas. “This year’s pioneers know that technology is about more than innovation – it is also about application. This is why we believe they’ll shape the future,” said Fulvia Montresor, head of Technology Pioneers at the WEF.

All 56 Technology Pioneers were celebrated at the Annual Meeting of the New Champions in July, and a select few will also attend the World Economic Forum meeting at Davos in January 2020. They will continue to participate in a two-year programme with the Forum, collaborating with emerging tech fellows, engaging with industry and working with global experts.

Sky Labs
Sky Labs is developing Cart, a wearable cardiac tracker that identifies arrhythmia. Arrhythmia refers to an irregular heartbeat that, despite being a common disease, is difficult to detect. Its detection and treatment are important as it can negatively impact quality of life and, in some cases, can lead to stroke or heart failure.

Jack Lee is the company’s founder and CEO. His previous endeavours include leading the development of 5G cellular communication technology when working in R&D with Samsung. Sky Labs is based in Seongnam-si in South Korea.
