Healthtech company Aurabox is changing the way medical imaging is accessed, with a $499,072 grant in the latest round of Accelerating Commercialisation funding, under the Australian Government’s Entrepreneurs’ Programme.
Aurabox is an innovative Australian startup founded in 2021 by radiologist and CEO Dr Chaturica Athukorala and CTO Christopher Skene, with a mission to build a patient-centric health data platform for medical imaging.
“Our team has been working hard to solve a problem that I have been facing for years as a radiologist - the inability to easily access medical imaging for patients.
Aurabox solves this problem. It is a patient centric imaging platform which allows imaging from any practice to be stored and viewed by doctors in one place,” said Aurabox co-founder and CEO, Dr Chaturica Athukorala.
The government’s recognition of the innovation offered by Aurabox and the benefits to doctors and their patients in Australia (and across the world) is a significant milestone on the team’s roadmap.
“The grant from the Department of Industry, Science and Resources has allowed us to complete key hires, accelerate software development and extend our runway which has enabled us to refine our product-market fit and secure our first sales,” said Aurabox co-founder and CTO, Christopher Skene.
As part of the grant, Aurabox gains access to highly experienced commercialisation advisers to provide strategic partnering opportunities and specialist mentoring for the ensuing stages of the business building process.
