Hi Lindsay, there are several business models to be considered in the research and planning phase. They could be stand-alone, or work together 1. Subscription for users (a small monthly subscription fee for the service) 2. Affiliate programs with services catering to the needs of the patients as well as the caregivers 3. Funding by board of specialists in the field, such as research and clinical institutions
thanks for your reply! I would be able to build an MVP with my team given we get some funding. I would aim at collaborating with companies within my network who have already built some pretty amazing bot tech such as https://www.swell.wtf/. I believe the most work would go into building the initial data base with researchers, scientists and professional caregivers in order to compile the intelligence behind it. I would love to also involve the OpenIDEO community into making this process interesting and fruitful. Thanks for linking me to Abdo Moussa and making me aware of these other amazing ideas!
