Seeking Applicants for the 2018

Diabetes Challenge 2018-02-15T13:01:36+00:00

BUILDING FROM SUCCESS

In 2016, T1D Exchange hosted the inaugural Diabetes Innovation Challenge, which was generously supported by lead sponsors American Diabetes Association (ADA) and JDRF. Starting with a qualified field of 60 applicants, awards were presented totaling $150,000 cash or in-kind services to 7 innovative companies.

The goal of the Challenge is to

  • identify the most promising innovations in diabetes
  • present them to our network of funders, investors, and partners from academia and industry and
  • award the top innovations with cash and in-kind support to help them advance the development of their products.

Ultimately, the vision for the Diabetes Innovation Challenge is to accelerate transformation and delivery of discoveries to the patient community.
