BioAccel Announces Proof Of Concept Challenge For Faculty and Students

May 16, 2013

BioAccel is challenging students, university faculty, entrepreneurs, scientists and other innovators to participate in the BioAccel Solutions Challenge to solve medical and health delivery problems in Arizona.
BioAccel will publicly release a vetted list of key health care problems, or "needs", identified by industry practitioners and leaders aimed to challenge entrepreneurs to create innovative solutions to solve them. The needs are expected to focus on improving patient care and health outcomes by using medical devices, molecular diagnostics and potentially health IT.
Qualified applicants will receive a $50,000 investment from BioAccel if they succeed in receiving matching funds from investors during a competitive and lively investment day event. Successful groups will then have $100,000 in proof-of-concept dollars to form companies to address these healthcare needs.
