How can your early-stage innovative technology solution solve the world’s most pressing social and environmental problems?




Mosquitoes are the deadliest animal in the world. Vectech empowers health systems to fight mosquito-borne diseases, through the generation of reliable detection and monitoring data. Currently, these practices rely on the manual collection and visual inspection of mosquito species, an arduous task. Vectech has developed a novel method utilizing standardized optics and computer vision methods to provide rapid, high-accuracy detection and monitoring capabilities to smart devices. Our first product, a device for public health technicians to conduct surveillance with the rigor and quality of an expert entomologist, will be followed by smart traps and citizen science applications that will exponentially expand environmental health data for all.
