Take Off Istanbul 2019 is the second iteration of the revolutionizing startup promotion event. The startup event has a limitation of being in the approved territory list provided by Google Cloud Platform. Although Pakistan is not on that list, however, the event did witness some amazing Pakistani startup ideas. One of the ideas actually won a significant prize.
Instacare, a Pakistani medical startup founded by Muhammad Bilal Amjad successfully got shortlisted among the top 15 Foreign start-ups.
This shortlisting did bring ample amounts of advantages for the medical application. Due to this accomplishment, Instacare will now receive a monthly allowance of $1000 to speed start its progress. Moreover, the startup now has permission to expand its wings all across Turkey, which automatically makes it an international brand.
What is Instacare?
Instacare is a Pakistani HealthTech startup which was in incubation with NICL. The CEO of Instacare had a motive to revolutionize and enhance the ease of medical services in Pakistan. An idea of enhancement was there, it has been there for a long time. But, it lacked execution. Instacare took that first step towards execution and Takeoff Istanbul has really proved to be a major stepping stone for the success of this initiative. According to the CEO, Instacare aims to save more than 1,000,000 Pakistani children, men, and women. The system wants to bridge the gaps between the underprivileged and the minor negligencies.
