Virtual Health Challenge Pitch Event #1: Cancer Care

June 19, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm ADT

Building on the exciting new partnership between Nova Scotia Health Authority (NSHA), QEII Foundation, BioNova, ACOA and Volta, the Health Challenge Pitch Event Series will showcase medtech companies with disruptive technologies and/or services that align with a major priority of the province’s health care system.

This series of pitch events (five in total) will focus on priorities identified by NSHA; companies in the medtech space will be tasked with presenting their technologies as a means of solving these priorities. The goal is to provide market validation for these medtech startups and provide an opportunity for NSHA to consider adopting these new innovations.

The first Health Challenge Pitch event on Friday, June 19, 2020 will focus on cancer care.

Medtech companies are invited to apply, and those selected will present how their technology and/or service will solve the identified priority. The judging panel will be comprised of experts as identified by NSHA and other partners.

The winning company will receive $100,000 and their innovative technology will be considered for adoption by the NSHA.

Event Schedule:

12:00pm to 1:40pm: Eight medtech companies pitch (Seven minute presentation + three-minute Q&A)

1:40pm to 2:00pm: Judge Deliberation + Winner Announced
