The third annual Bear Institute Pediatric Accelerator Challenge for Kids (PACK) is inviting you to join us as we bring together entrepreneurs, pediatric healthcare providers and pediatric hospital administrators, and investors from around the country to close the immense innovation gap in children’s digital health.
Top pediatric healthcare start-ups with innovations in the following areas of development: Early-stage Innovation, Concept Validation, Early Commercialization and Growth Trajectory will showcase their solutions to pediatric healthcare professionals around the country.
Start-ups will share their innovations and receive valuable feedback from expert judges to learn ways to enhance their solutions and associated value, all for a chance to win an on-site pilot at Children’s National Hospital among other prizes.
Start-ups interested in submitting an innovation for consideration in the challenge can use the Start-Up Registration.
