The startup community is alive and well, not only in its “ancestral home” of Silicon Valley in the United States but throughout the rest of the world as well – and particularly in major emerging markets like India and Singapore.

And while a considerable amount of the startup community is focused entirely on the Financial and Technology sectors of the world, looking to take advantage of new research, new innovations, and new solutions to generate more wealth and solve the kinds of problems that plague our world and have plagued us for years and years, a number of startups are focusing on the Healthcare community to make sure that we are living longer and better lives moving forward.

The healthcare industry has always been one to take full advantage of new technology, new research, and new innovations, though some have accused them of being a little bit “slow-moving” when it comes to the actual process of bringing new solutions into the fold and making sure they are widely available to anyone and everyone that needs them – and not just the very wealthy.

A number of major healthcare startups are being established to fight back against that kind of trend, looking to make the most of new technology, the internet, and the global healthcare community to make sure that everyone has equal access to the help they need.

Here are the top five global healthcare startups you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for in 2018 and beyond!
