WE ARE ALPHA VET TECH
Alpha Vet Tech
The journey began with an unfortunate loss of a puppy due to anaesthesia complications at a vet practice, igniting the idea for a dedicated monitoring solution for animals.
The idea floated in the founders’ minds for several years, technologies and concepts were explored. Momentum picked up pace with the maturing of wearable and cloud technologies, prototypes were developed and patents filed in 2016.
Being awarded grants from the New South Wales Government and the TEDx Sydney Kick Start competition in 2017 provided the impetus for the founders to kick off Alpha Vet Tech as a business. They hired the first staff member and set up the Australian office, quickly followed by engagements with our Swiss technology partners for commercialisation in 2018.
Today, Alpha Vet Tech (AVT) is an animal health medical technology company with wireless monitoring and data-driven solutions for veterinary professionals, with a global team in Australia, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and the United States.
