re: Indian expat engineers bring medtech back home

Sorry, was travelling in India to a place where there is no Internet access.. Yes, ayurveda is a good thing but there are too many players and no one seems to be thinking of getting tech into this - the only company that comes to mind in terms of ayurveda is Himalaya Drugs but they use tech and equipment only in mass production of ayurvedic drugs... India has a long way to go, esp when you look at the cost of drugs and the profile of a large section of population that is unable to pay for any kind of treatment

While new technology does bring efficient products, it is worth investigating Ayurvedic system where attention is paid to the patient as an individual and the potion is prepared specific to that person. The effect is far more pronounced and side effects are minimal. There is an Pharmacopia for Ayurveda today, but new technology can enhance it and bring them to common man. One of the quality controllers from Delhi (of Ayurvedic medicine) pointed out that the quality of drugs vary considerably. One of the methods new technology can bring to focus is quick and reliable methods to ensure drug quality.

The growth opportunities for healthcare sector in India are huge. This is mostly because of number of people living in this country and major sections of these people are under-privileged and deprived of proper medical attention. Cost of treatment is one of the primary factors. The new generation of these entrepreneurs is focusing on the right direction.

With more and more Indians venturing into start-ups in medical domain could benefit all many people receive low cost healthcare across the world.

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
