Innovation Jam 2017
October 3 @ 1:00 PM- 3:00 PM
Duke Institute for Health Innovation’s 3rd Innovation Jam is a “Shark Tank” style event to which all Duke faculty, staff and students are invited to apply and/or attend. Applicants should submit pragmatic health innovations with immediate application at Duke and/or commercial potential.
The proposed ideas can be a concept or a simple prototype, but must have a clear business and value proposition. The event will be formatted after the television show Shark Tank.
Several senior leaders have pledged to invest actual dollars in order to earn a coveted place at the Investors’ Table.
No more than six innovative and well-developed ideas will be selected to pitch to esteemed investors.
Applications are open to staff, faculty, trainees and students from Duke Health, Duke University and Duke University Health System. Teams can consist of individuals from different divisions, departments and schools. The Innovation Jam is an exciting chance to see what the best and brightest can pitch to investors and hear what they think! Event attendance is open to both Duke and external audiences.
