Biorithm, a startup based in Singapore was awarded a spot in the Top 20 finalists of Startup SG’s Slingshot Competition’s “COVID-19 Challenge: Creating the New Normal” sector. In addition, they made it to the Top 100 Finalists overall, representing one of the Top 20 innovative startups in the MedTech, HealthTech & BioTech sector.
The Slingshot competition is an annual startup competition powered by Startup SG and organized by Enterprise Singapore. This year was its fourth annual edition, and due to the pandemic, the finals at SFF x SWITCH 2020 (Singapore FinTech Festival x Singapore Week of Innovation and Technology) were held virtually to accommodate its very global participants.
This year, the competition was also global and as a result, highly competitive. Biorithm competed with over 7,500 other innovative and globally based startups to receive its place in the Top 20 of two widely sought-out challenge sectors. The Top 100 start-ups were invited for a week of mentorship and pitch clinics, called Gear-Up, which prepared them for the three-day virtual finals.

Biorithm provides innovative maternal-fetal connected care solution to improve pregnancy outcomes for patients and healthcare providers.
Forging new frontiers in pregnancy care, Biorithm has developed cutting edge analytic software together with medical-grade abdominal ECG wearable designed for remote monitoring of maternal & fetal physiological parameters.
Our unique solution allows accurate monitoring of a wide range of vital pregnancy data, empowering patient and clinicians to identify early signs of maternal-fetal complication for timely intervention while reducing the cost of care.
Founded by doctors and engineers, Biorithm is a medical technology start-up spun-off from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore. We believe that comprehensive maternal healthcare should leverage the power of digital health and advanced sensors to address individual patient and clinicians needs, enhance data-driven decisions, complication prevention, and provide access to affordable and preventive care.
