EXPOSURE

In addition to the press and marketing for the Health Acceleration Challenge, the ideas of our finalists will be widely distributed to HBS and HMS alumni. You will also receive a Health Acceleration Challenge Winner or Finalist logo to use in your promotional materials.

FINANCIAL AWARD

Our finalists will split the $150,000 Cox Award, as determined by our judges at the end of June 2016. An additional $50,000 will be awarded one year later to the organization that has had the most success in scaling up.

COMMUNITY FEEDBACK

Applicants will receive invaluable feedback on their innovation and scale-up plan from a community of health care executives and entrepreneurs through our Health Acceleration Challenge platform. We hope that our process will assist you in finding new investors, customers and collaborators, even if you are not selected as a finalist in our Challenge.
