Addressing Rapid Climate Change. 

Challenge Statement:

How might we empower communities with innovative solutions to address health disparities and climate change?

Solutions can address one or both of the tracks below:

  1. Sustainable Health Delivery: Seeking solutions that promote circularity in health delivery such as sustainable products, processes, and services
  2. Health effects of climate change: Seeking solutions that directly address the health effects of rapid climate change

Who should apply?

We’re seeking entrepreneurs who are developing solutions to improve sustainability efforts within the healthcare industry. This nation-wide call for solutions is open to individuals and teams from across the innovation ecosystem — from university researchers, students, entrepreneurs and existing startups of all stages. Solutions can range from early-stage concepts to marketed solutions. Preference will be given to underrepresented entrepreneurs of color.
