Nanyang Technopreneurship Center (NTC) of the Nanyang Technological University, a leading Asian university located in Singapore, recently hosted the 3rd NTC Silicon Valley Technopreneurship Forum at the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, California. The NTC was established in 2001 as the focal point of technological entrepreneurship development within the university, Singapore and the Asian region.
A collection of venture capitalists, corporations, and entrepreneurs from both Singapore and the Silicon Valley attended the forum to discuss the art and science of entrepreneurship. As a keynote speaker for the forum, Eddy Lee presented insights on the state-of-art of health technology, and the future opportunities for anyone interested to participate in this sector.
Eddy’s presentation focused on tomorrow’s wearable technologies. In his speech, Eddy emphasized that wearables in today’s markets, including the Fitbit and Google Glass represent only a fraction of the tidal change in consumer health and wellness to come. He also revealed that tomorrow gadgets will enable 24/7 monitoring of one’s health using smart shirts or an electronic tattoo, as well as the enhancement of sight, hearing, and other senses by the implantation of miniature devices. Eddy concluded that new investment opportunities will arise in the technologies required to support tomorrow’s wearables, such as intelligent software, biological energy, and robotics.
