Tell us about your partnerships
Are you currently targeting other specific populations, locations, or markets for your innovation? If so, where and why?
CLAP is targeting populations in developing countries, and, especially in rural areas, which are technologically lagging. The main attributes of CLAP are summarized in the easy-to-use, low power and, still, reliable technology and, to this end, it is targeting isolated populations who would benefit from having access to quality health services.
What type of operating environment and internal organizational factors make your innovation successful?
An open space environment with many external collaborators invited and mingled in and many participations in public events; no worries about IP and background knowledge protection; mobilisation of resources from volunteers and collaborators; nimble product design, easily readapted to external demand changes
Please elaborate on any needs or offers you have mentioned above and/or suggest categories of support that aren't specified within the list
