Corona Wake-Up Call #2
Time & Location
About the Event
With COVID-19 impacting the world, JVP, an internationally renowned venture capital fund, initiated a virtual emergency series entitled “The Corona Wakeup Call”.
Only by working together can we rapidly improve the accessibility to healthcare systems for people worldwide, we aim to help companies and entrepreneurs develop the relevant tools to combat the Coronavirus outbreak.
Last week, we kicked off the series with the first session, reaching thousands worldwide who were actively engaged in the discussion, sharing their thoughts and ideas in real-time.
The discussion emphasized how true collaboration across countries and continents can make a difference in this battle for survival. Vital connections have already been made between some of the speakers and viewers, both from private and public sectors.
To expand the ecosystem and keep these collaborations going, Monday, April 6th at 5pm IL time, we will be hosting the second session, moderated by Erel Margalit, JVP Founder and Chairman. The speakers will include mayors, government officials, technological entrepreneurs, medical professionals, hospital administrators, academic researchers, and representatives of multinational companies. Startups will share their breakthrough technologies and equipment assisting the medical teams in the field.
We will discuss how to “Save the Global Health Systems”, addressing four main challenges: protecting the hospitals and the medical teams from contacting the virus, solutions to address the need for medical equipment, medicines, and food supplies, advancing remote care mechanisms and creative temporary emergency facilities.
