Covidtenders.org : Marketplace that allows companies to list hard and software solutions and health officials to find them
We want to facilitate the exchange of technology by opening up an open, public database of COVID-19 innovations and tenders.
About the Project
The Coronavirus creates urgent demand for specialized technologies in airports, quarantine zones, hospitals, logistic supply, prisons,... Companies have been coming up with solutions that can be replicated in other countries, granted that they can match and talk to the buyers directly.
We want to facilitate the exchange of technology by opening up an open, public database of COVID-19 innovations. Suppliers of tech solutions can directly post their details online, and be openly searched and browsed by anyone who has a demand, in a peer-to-peer fashion. We will also reference a complete list of government tenders.
The database will be subdivided in categories: Software (Algorithms & Simulation, Epidemiology, Consumer, Public), Hardware (Protection, Decontamination, Detection systems,), and more. We want to get this website up and running and start listing by 26th of march.
SEE THE WEBSITE LIVE www.covidtenders.org
We have built the website and published it on www.covidinnovations.org
We have 100 government tenders listed which sum up to 1B USD in funds raised for COVID solutions.
We have 40 solutions that were already crowd-submitted after a few newsletter reachouts.
We have 300 pageviews per day and are looking for 10 or 100 fold to be effective.
