Get Ready for the 2018 T1D Exchange Diabetes Innovation Challenge!

The spring 2018 T1D Exchange Diabetes Innovation Challenge is a singular event driven by a growing community of innovators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and investors working to accelerate transformational innovations in diabetes.

The goal of the Challenge is to identify the most promising innovations in diabetes, and present them to our network of funders, investors, and partners from academia and industry.

Our aim is to help find these innovative organizations, raise their visibility and invite them to make connections that can ultimately lead to them securing the necessary support for advancement to the next stage of development. Ultimately, the vision for the T1D Exchange Diabetes Innovation Challenge is to accelerate transformation and delivery of discoveries to the patient community.

Building from Success

In 2016, T1D Exchange hosted the inaugural Diabetes Innovation Challenge with M2D2 (a joint venture of the University of Massachusetts that incubates medical device start-ups). The Challenge 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.
