According to Google
We’re inspired by founders like Temie Giwa-Tubosun in Lagos, Nigeria, who saw that every year tens of thousands of people in her country die waiting for blood, not because of supply, but because of inefficient transportation systems connecting donor blood to those in need. She used the power of blockchain and artificial intelligence to launch her startup, Lifebank, an app and motorcycle network that connects blood banks to hospitals in urgent need of blood. LifeBank can now deliver 10,000 pints of blood in a single hour and is expanding to more countries across the developing world.
We are so excited to share this milestone with you. We recently closed our seed round. Read the full story here https://t.co/5saSNdr5yC
