Created as an exciting, new partnership between Nova Scotia Health (NSH), QEII Foundation, BioNova, ACOA and Volta, the Health Challenge Pitch Event Series showcases 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) focuses on various priorities as identified by NSH; companies in the pre-determined field – in this case, mental health and wellness – will be tasked with presenting their technologies as a means of solving these priorities. The goal is to provide market validation for these companies and provide an opportunity for NSH to pilot these new innovations.
The second Health Challenge Pitch event on Friday, October 2 , 2020 will focus on mental health and wellness. Health and life sciences 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 industry experts as identified by NSH and other partners.
The winning company will receive $100,000 and their innovative technology will be considered for adoption by NSH.
