Here are the most promising startups in the 5G space

New and emerging technologies require those who are brave enough to venture into it. As we enter the 5G era, one particular institution is spearheading initiatives that provide opportunities to innovate into the space. Asia Pacific Telecom (APT), through the APT 5G Accelerator, hopes to inject new creative resources, promote new innovations, and initiate international exchanges for and between startups developing solutions powered by 5G.

In the recently concluded APT 5G Challenge 2021, three startups shined as they showcased their solutions and kickstarted their journey to innovation in 5G.

Fabrik, a solution that provides companies with a single, constantly updating platform to manage information for better maintenance of their assets, bagged the Gold Award.

Hi Health Technology, a motion interactive streaming platform that records and analyses motion data for better health monitoring won the Silver Award.
