2012 Data Design Diabetes Demo Day
Just a few weeks ago, the 2012 Data Design Diabetes Innovation Challenge awarded $20,000 to five semi-finalists competing to win this year’s challenge. As this stage of the Innovation Challenge comes to a close, each team is now working closely with a group of experienced mentors, and participating in an exciting Design Boot Camp to evolve their concepts. Now it’s your turn to get involved! On May 16, 2012, the teams will reveal their progress, presenting their prototypes before an expert panel of judges at Demo Day in New York City.
I’m excited to invite you all to personally participate in this year’s Demo Day. You’ll have the opportunity to watch the semi-finalists’ presentations, then cast your vote online to help determine this year’s Innovation Challenge winner. Can’t make it to New York City? There are plenty of ways to get involved online or in-person. We have outlined the ways you can participate below.
