ClickDiagnostics ~ Update from Bangladesh!

Mridul Chowdhury, one the great KSG students in our Developmental Entrepreneurship seminar, reports back from his January trip to Bangladesh that the time is now, the need is high, and the solution is promising for his ClickDiagnostics venture. ClickDiagnostics uses a mobile phone with camera to image eye and skin ailments, wirelessly send the info to a qualified clinician in the city hospital, and thus enable lower-cost diagnosis. Mridul's made an informal video of his experiences... This is one of the great teams my colleagues and I helped support with an MIT Developmental Entrepreneurship-IDRC Seed Grant over IAP 2008.
