The Healthcare Innovation World Cup truly is a worldwide endeavor,comprising two regional competitions – one in India, and one in New York City – and leading to a final event at the German Center for Research and Innovation in New York in May 2013. Regional semifinalists and finalists – as individuals or in teams up to three people – will receive expense-paid trips to present their ideas live to judges and other industry leaders.
This global competition begins with one simple step: entering a 500-word overview of your innovative idea via our online application .
Following the 500-word submission, top teams who are invited to the second round will be asked to submit full business plans as well as a low-quality five-minute video introducing their team. Videos are strongly encouraged but not required. The top five teams from round two will then compete in the semifinals, where they will present their ideas to a panel of judges. The top two teams from the semifinals with then compete in the finals in New York.
