DiabetesMine Challenge Goes Live
As of this morning, the 2011 DiabetesMine Design Challenge went live. The online challenge is the DiabetesMine annual medical device competition to encourage innovative tools for improving life with diabetes. The competition is open to patients, parents, caregivers, students, entrepreneurs, developers, engineers, etc. – if you’ve got a great idea for a new diabetes tool, they want to hear from you.
DiabetesMine will be working with IDEO Design and the California HealthCare Foundation to offer $25K in prize money and help with furthering the winning concepts. Some of the top prizes include coveted innovator access to one of our Health 2.0 conferences, three $7K Grand Prizes, a $2.5K prize for the ‘Most Creative’ entry, and $1.5K will be awarded to the best ‘Kids’ Idea’ (tools designed for ages 17 and under).
