On 8th October 2019, Harrison.ai and Horizons Ventures Limited organized an interactive session for students and teacher from Li Ka Shing Foundation, Hong Kong-based and second largest private foundation in the world, at our office in Barangaroo, Australia, with journalists from 11 media houses in attendance.
“Horizons Ventures, the private investment arm of Mr. Li Ka-shing, is a leading investor in some of the world’s most innovative companies and disruptive technologies, including Facebook, Waze, Spotify, Impossible Foods, Improbable and Zoom.” (Horizons Ventures)
Harrison.ai founders shared their inspiring entrepreneurial journey so far – moving to Australia from Vietnam as students with a passion and following their passion for improving quality and accessibility of healthcare by co-founding Harrison.ai.
Dimitry Tran – CEO of Harrison.ai - proudly introduced vision, mission and team members of Harrison.ai. Harrison.ai is a healthcare artificial intelligence company focussed on addressing persistent healthcare challenges to positively impact patient outcomes and improve accessibility of care – to make impossible care routine, for everyone. We build and deploy AI products into clinical workflows to positively impact patient outcomes.
Aengus Tran described the journey of IVY - AI model for embryo selection to improve IVF patients’ outcomes.
“IVY uses deep learning technology, it’s been trained without human bias, to predict the healthiest embryo first time. An embryologist can then rank the most viable embryo for transfer. The IVY technology has the potential to shorten the timeframe to a successful pregnancy.” (Harrison.ai)
Students had the opportunity to interact with the founders during the Q&A session as well as a breakout session later on. The passion and curiosity of these students to understand the entrepreneurial journey from idea to execution and launching a successful start-up was both commendable and heart-warming.
The students, faculty and foundation representative were all gifted the book “Prediction Machine” by Harrison.ai to keep their entrepreneurial fire burning.
