Like all college students, Naman, Isha and me always had fantasies of how we would start our business and someday be like our icons – Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg.We would joke how we would start our company and then instead of taking placements in our college we would be the ones offering them. Last year at around August we learned about IICDC 2017 through our college, Sardar Patel Institute of Technology. We had worked together for our college fest and knew we worked well as a team.
So our idea, HealthSet was basically to create a remote health monitoring system. HealthSet is a comprehensive diagnostic suite. It measures multiple medical parameters like ECG, body temperature, body movement and BPM. These readings are stored on a cloud which are accessible to a doctor. So we needed a team to participate in this competition. I would handle the Marketing and Business part while Naman & Isha would handle the technical part.
This was a one-in-a-lifetime experience for us. We had never thought we would be doing the kind of things we did in this competition. From dreaming to start a company to actually coming so close to make it a reality was an awesome experience. All the help and support provided by our college SPIT management and faculty, especially electronics dept was invaluable. We are lucky to be in this college who supported us in this competition. This experience will forever be itched in our memory. Kudos to TI, IIM B & DST for coming together to create this awesome experience at IICDC. This is a blessing for all college students who dream of making it big but don’t know the means for it.
