Announcing the 3rd annual Hackathon sponsored by Brigham Innovation Hub!
If you’re interested in coding, information technology, or creating disruptive solutions in healthcare, this is the place for you. This annual event, this year focusing on Digital Health, brings together brilliant, innovative minds to pitch and develop “hacks” to problems affecting healthcare today. At the end of the weekend, teams will pitch their plans to a panel of judges for the chance to win honors and prizes.
Besides the chance for honor and glory, the Hackathon provides a fantastic opportunity to work with experts in a myriad of fields as well as connect with like-minded geniuses with a passion for change. It’s the perfect way to become involved with the Innovation Hub at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, which is a valuable asset in developing your solutions, either ones that came into being during the Hackathon or were developed afterwards.
Students and young innovators enter the Hackathon with ambition and leave it with a team, many of which have gone on to found their own start-ups, enter business plan competitions (MIT 100K), and secure venture funding for their disruptive solutions to healthcare.
Skills of all kinds are welcomed at the Hackathon, but most valued is an ability to question standards and think outside the box.
The weekend starts Friday afternoon, November 6th, and culminates with a networking reception Sunday afternoon, November 8th. Visit http://disruptingmedicine.org/collaboration-series-events/2015-hackathon/ for more information and to apply to participate!
