Shark Tank deal-winner CancerAid to be judged by Richard Branson and Steve Wozniak in this year’s Talent Unleashed awards

Healthtech startup and Shark Tank alumni CancerAid has been named a finalist in this year’s Talent Unleashed awards and will now be judged by global entrepreneurial heavyweights like Richard Branson and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak for a chance to head to Silicon Valley and meet global startup leaders.

CancerAid co-founder Dr. Raghav Murali-Ganesh says being nominated as a Talent Unleashed finalist is a “fantastic validation of our efforts” for the Sydney-based startup, which was founded in 2015.

The CancerAid app helps patients organise their cancer journey and manage their awareness and expectations in an individualised way, while also working with clinicians to deliver tailored information.

The startup has been nominated for the Best Startup: Community or Social Impact award, and Murali-Ganesh says he is thankful for the ability to showcase CancerAid on a global stage in front of a “prestigious judging panel”.

CancerAid operates as a smartphone application allowing cancer patients and their caregivers to improve their health outcomes and patient experience through treatment planning, journals, an online community and peer-reviewed cancer treatment information. Read more
