The Hello Tomorrow Global Challenge, a worldwide renowned science & technology startup competition, is designed specifically to address the needs of deeptech entrepreneurs across several different industries and technologies.

RxAll is an AI-hyperspectral Platform for Authenticating Drugs. The platform uses a proprietary molecular sensor device with a cloud-based IP-protected AI algorithm and database of spectral signatures of drugs- both prescription and recreational- to carry out non-destructive drug authentication.

The RxAll HeatMap in the Software App shows where bad drugs show up, the bad batches and bad suppliers. This helps drug regulators with batch recalls and with intercepting drug counterfeiters.

RxAll works with drug regulators and other stakeholders to reduce branded drug counterfeiting and ensure that patients receive high quality authenticated drugs. Pharma manufacturers increase sales and patients have better access to high quality drugs.

Created in 2013 by deeptech entrepreneur Xavier Duportet and Arnaud De La Tour, the Hello Tomorrow deepTech Challenge gives scientists and deeptech entrepreneurs around the globe a platform for their research and projects, providing equity-free prize money as well as other funding opportunities, global visibility and connections with key players in the deeptech innovation network.
