Close to 50 entries were received from all over the world. After detailed scrutiny by an esteemed panel, 10 finalists were selected and the final presentation of ideas was held at Fortis Memorial Research Institute. The top three teams which made to the finale were Lyfas, Keyer and Team Shubham Mishra.

The Winning Team Shubham Mishra said, "Winning this challenge will give us the much-required launchpad. Our work is going to be a game changer, helping us bring about a massive change in the healthcare landscape. We are hoping that through our work we are able to develop point care diagnosis equipment which can detect a different kind of biological analytes within a minute, at an estimated cost of just 20-25 rupees. The #StartupInc Challenge platform gave us an opportunity to learn, interact with caregivers-patients, and get unsurpassed exposure and valuable feedback."
