Launched in November 2016, Digital Ventures Accelerator (DVA) is an accelerator run by a team of funders who understand the frustration of scaling a startup. DVA is devoted to doing something a little different to fix that problem.
DVA crafted a 6-month intensive program dedicated to granting startups’ core needs. Fundamental business knowledge is firmly embedded in the first 3 months to equip startups with three essential courses which are Startup Essential, Legal and Financial courses. Earlier at DVA Batch 1, Meticuly was one out of 10 startups that made it to DVA Demo Day and competed in pitching its business model to judges and an audience of over 600 people.
Commenting at the event, Assist. prof. Boonrat Lohwongwata, Ph.D., Co-founder of Meticuly said, “We are very glad to have the opportunity to present our model in DVA’s Batch 1 this year. We truly believe that we have a solid model that can very sustainable and is very beneficial to the Thai medical community.”
Meticuly won its first award at the event – the Popular Vote award – followed by the most prestigious award of the event – DVA’s grand prize.
“These two awards speak very strongly to what we are trying to accomplish and will help us reach our goal of providing better healthcare options to patients in need of prostheses,” Assistant Professor Lohwongwata said, “we are confident that we are on the right path – the path of helping more and more people in need of high quality prostheses and improving their quality of life.”
Meticuly Company Limited was founded in February 2017. The technology platform was started in a research unit by two very intellectual and passionate technologists at the Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University. They were passionate about what their innovation could deliver and had the vision to see this technology provide better healthcare options for Thai people. In cooperation with Thailand’s leading medical schools and top medical teams, they’re making Meticuly a reality.
