This grant will support a new Healthcare Innovation Challenge at NYU, co-developed by the NYU Entrepreneurial Institute and the NYU School of Medicine. The challenge has four goals: 1) increase the engagement of engineers, developers, business students, and researchers in the issues and opportunities in healthcare; 2) facilitate E-Team formation around multidisciplinary groups; 3) identify and prototype technology solutions to healthcare opportunities; and 4) to provide training, mentorship, and initial financial support to the most promising E-Teams to transform their prototypes into successful commercial ventures.
