judging

3 ROUNDS

A one-on-one session between the team presenting its solution, and the judges from the Challenge sponsor for whom the solution was developed (e.g., Challenge sponsor “x” will judge team submissions for their/its challenge). Each sponsoring company will select its two finalists to advance to Round 2.

The top 16 teams, two from each sponsoring company, will present in the HLTH General Session Ballroom, with full A/V support, in front of our panel of judges. The presentations will be open to all HLTH attendees.

The winning team will join HLTH’s “Startup Pitch” program, presenting their solution in front of investors, media and other stakeholders from the healthcare ecosystem.  This 3-minute pitch will then determine if they become a finalist, competing for the grand prize on HLTH’s main stage, Sunday, October 27, 2019.
