Aardvark Labs and Padang & Co have joined forces to launch CATALYST Collaborative Workspace, a coworking space that seeks to support medical and health technology startups and clinician-innovators.
The opening ceremony of CATALYST co-working space was officiated by Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister-in-charge of the Smart Nation initiative. MoUs were signed between Aardvark Labs and SingHealth, National Healthcare Group (NHG), and National Health Innovation Centre (NHIC).
Under these MOUs, CATALYST pledges to foster “technology innovation in the healthcare space and creates new partnerships that deliver real health outcomes and meaningful business impact”.
CATALYST plans to bring together public and private-practice clinician-innovators, medtech, and healthtech startups to develop products and services that help prevent and cure diseases, in a scalable manner.
