Our third Mobile Monday Athens event, themed around mHealth, is now at an end. The event (April 25 @ Eugenides Foundation) played host to four speakers, who discusses the mHealth sector and the opportunities emerging in this innovative market, as well as a competition for mHealth apps.
The event was highly successful, with over 120 people attending and nearly 50 people watching it online, via live streaming! So, we’d like to thank you all; those who attended – in person or online – as well as the participants, who joined our competition and presented their apps! Also, a big thanks to the event sponsor, SAP Hellas, as well as StartersFund – who supported the app competition.
Here are our speakers for the event – their presentations can be found online, here.
- David Doherty (3G Doctor): How mobile is disrupting the health sector
- Sophia Salenius (RegPoint): Apps vs SMS in implementing mobile health
- Dimitris Hagigeorgiou (SAP): Mobille health solutions today
- Nikos Papachristou (eHealthGr): The reality and challenges of mHealth in Greece (interactive session)
During the competition, our participants presented their ideas – one participant had come all the way from France to attend the competition, while another presented his app online, via Skype! The competition was crowdfunded, i.e. each member of the audience was given 500 Mobile Money (our own version of the Euro – see here) and asked to vote for whomever of the contestants he/she felt had the best ideas! Our audience could spread their money on multiple apps, put it all on a single app or just keep them to themselves (you know who you are!!).
So – here are the winners of the competition, as voted by our audience (ranked in terms of Mobile Money received):
