About Protoalpha Accelerator: The protoalpha accelerator is a Product Realization Accelerator that helps innovators who have product ideas but lack resources and capabilities to convert their ideas into early stage prototypes. As part of the protoalpha accelerator, Venture Center worked with 6 ideators to develop solutions to various unmet needs. It is a truly pioneering initiative in which we helped advance an idea and completely fund an early prototype under a codevelopment model, with BMeK as our technical partner for the program. 

About Jitesh Pandey’s journey: MedBlue Innovations with the support of the Proto Alpha Accelerator designed and developed a non invasive bilirubin measurement device for screening and monitoring neonatal jaundice in new born babies. 

TechEx Role: TechEx.in has played an important role in drafting and finalizing the terms of the joint development agreement and in facilitating know-how transfer to the incorporated startup to take the technology ahead.
