BOULDER, Colo., June 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Prima-Temp announced today it placed in the top 3 amongst over 1,000 global innovative companies at the annual Challenge Cup 1776 finals.
Sponsored by technology incubator and seed fund 1776, the competition featured entrepreneurs from Australia, Canada, Colombia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Morocco, Philippines the United Arab Emirates, the UK and the U.S.
Prima-Temp has garnered a cash prize and global recognition as a ground breaking, much needed technology. Dr. Lauren Costantini, CEO, presented Priya™, the company's personal fertility sensor, designed to help a woman get pregnant - www.priyaring.com - as well as other potential life saving platform extensions using Prima-Temp patented technology.
Prima-Temp Inc. has developed a product that monitors continuous core body temperature, one of the most reliable indicators of female fertility. "Priya has well-accepted technology," Dr. Costantini told the audience at the 1776 Challenge Cup finals; "Priya is truly effortless, discreet, and precise. When a woman is trying to get pregnant, she simply inserts the sensor that automatically sends data to the Priya app on her smart phone, and notifies her when she is most fertile."
Priya may help couples avoid costly fertility treatments, including in vitro fertilization/IVF.
Each year 1776, a global incubator and venture fund, hosts a worldwide tournament called the Challenge Cup. Together, with Startup Federation partners, Revolution, the Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN) and over 50 incubator hosts around the world, they discover the most promising, highly scalable startups that are poised to solve the major challenges of our time.
Startups advance through three rounds: Local, Regional and Global Finals. All of the regional winners and a host of wild cards were then invited to participate in the Challenge Cup Global Finals last week in Washington, D.C. There, they competed for over $1 million in prizes, as well as spent time with the investors, customers, media and other key connections that can help a company succeed on a global scale. Reportedly, Steve Case of AOL was one of the visionaries who founded "1776" to foster a global community of innovators tackling global challenges.
Prima-Temp brings new, innovative approaches to many of today's healthcare challenges through the application of 21st century thermometry. Prima-Temp's continuous temperature sensors and associated software allow the most precise method to measure true core body temperature, with the potential to address a multitude of applications including the PRIYA personal fertility sensor, early detection of infection or Sepsis, sleep disorders, therapy, weight control and exercise.
