The Health 2.0 Developer Challenge has given away nearly $2 million in prizes to tackle complex healthcare problems through online competitions and live code-a-thons. Our winners have gone on to secure pilot programs, join accelerators, gain customers, and get recognition for their innovative solutions. This session focus on the intersection between innovation competitions and accelerator/incubator programs.
