I learnt how to scope an unmet need for a product market fit, brainstorm solutions, create prototypes and develop a business strategy to navigate the healthcare landscape. Now, our project has evolved into a start-up called NAVi Medical Technologies, and we aim to complete a fully-functional prototype in the next 12 months.
