DIHI 2019 Innovation Jam
Duke Institute for Health Innovation (DIHI) is preparing for the fifth DIHI Innovation Jam. This is a shark tank-style program that will take place on October 17, 2019 from 10 am to 12 pm on the 6th floor of Trent Semans. Duke innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs from across Duke will have an opportunity to pitch their health-related innovations to a team of Duke "investors." All Duke faculty, staff, trainees and students are encouraged to apply. Applications are due August 17, 5 pm.
We are soliciting ideas that are closer to translation into market and/or commercialization.
Suggested themes for idea submissions include, but are not limited to:
1) Innovative devices
2) Novel use of analytics
3) Digital health/mHealth
We anticipate selecting up to six finalists from our total pool of applicants to present on October 17. Each innovator will have 5 minutes to pitch their idea to a panel of investors and evaluators, followed by a brief question and answer period.
A poster for the event is below and attached. More details, including link to the application, can be found on the DIHI website. For more information, please contact Krista Whalen, DIHIinnovationjam@duke.edu.
