TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – A local organization wants to help save lives during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Greater Topeka Partnership is collaborating with Plug and Play, a tech company based in Silicon Valley.
They’re looking for startups that may have the technology to help communities across the world during this crisis.
Katrin Bridges, a representative for GTP, said that technology has the potential to help get needed medical equipment and help speed up testing for people who can’t go to a hospital.
“There are ways and technology where you can use your cell phone and those are being developed to actually get a first screening of risk factors that you have,” Bridges said.
