We want to identify aspiring healthcare entrepreneurs, startups, researchers and teams with solutions and technologies aimed at improving the lives of people living with pain across all specialties and fields of medicine and provide them with the opportunity to pitch their ideas and solutions in a “shark tank” style competition in front of patients, providers, institutional and industry leaders, and venture capital firms for a chance to win prizes, mentorship, and exposure to advance their innovations.
This is the first pitch competition of its kind presented by one of the world’s leading pain medicine organizations: The American Academy of Pain Medicine. Combined with the resources and support of the world’s most prestigious healthcare innovation group, MIT Hacking Medicine, this opportunity is not to be missed!
