Description

Come hear the stories of 16 multidisciplinary innovator teams who have participated in Innovation 4 Health! These teams were tasked with creating working prototypes to solve a specific healthcare challenge in an intense 72-hour period.

During the Demo Day, these teams will present and demonstration their functional prototypes to compete for over $50,000 in awards which will offer them the opportunity to advance their idea. This will include seed funding, internships, incubator memberships, and professional services offered by our sponsors and community partners.


About Innovation 4 Health

Our mission is to connect innovators with real-world challenges in human and veterinary healthcare to address inefficiencies and barriers to wellness for all. Innovation 4 Health is a new student-led program at the University of Calgary which pairs aspiring innovators with challenges faced by healthcare professionals with the intent of creating working solutions and encouraging startups. Throughout November, innovators in the program network, learn about healthcare challenges, and form design teams. These teams are then tasked with designing a solution for their challenge in only 72 hours to compete for over $20,000 in awards.

The theme for the first year of the program is challenges faced in Surgery and Recovery, and this initiative is supported by the Cumming School of Medicine, Graduate Students' Association, The Hunter Hub for Entrepreneurship, Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program, and the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.
