Health Hack Academy is
the new meeting place for corporate project scouts, entrepreneurs, business
developers, hackers and gadget geeks, researchers, designers, students,
patients, healthcare professionals, and others who are looking to transform the
future of healthcare, self care and wellbeing. The goal of Health Hack Academy
is to support and accelerate the creation of digital health startups through
workshops and a hackathon with the finalists showcased at the international Digital │ Health Days 2014 conference in
The Health Hack Academy kick-off last Friday was a great success and 7 teams were formed during the afternoon around specific health challenges.
This coming weekend, 16-18 May, these 7 teams will knuckle down and attack their challenges for 48h to come up with solutions that will hopefully change peoples lives. During the weekend they will be supported and helped along the process by professional designers, business developers and healthcare experts. On Sunday, 18 May, it’s time for a showdown where all the teams will present their projects to a distinguished jury of professionals which will select 3 finalist teams. These teams will move on to the next round and continue to evolve their ideas in the Health Hack Academy, getting valuable training in prototyping and pitching before the final ceremony at the international Digital Health Days conference in August.
We would like to invite you to be the
first to see the fruits of the hackathon and to watch the teams pitch.
