Breast Cancer Startup Challenge – Info session Wednesday 9/18
Driving Innovation is reaching out to inform students of an exiting new initiative. See info below.
The Avon Foundation, the National Cancer Institute and Center for Advancing Innovation have partnered to create a “first of a kind” Breast Cancer Start-up Challenge; you can find the website here: http://www.breastcancerstartupchallenge.com! The Challenge features Breast Cancer Inventions (9 from the National Institutes of Health National Cancer Institute and 1 from an Avon Foundation grantee) that have commercial viability and are important to public health. The primary goal of the Challenge is to stimulate the creation of start-up businesses based upon these inventions.
We’re reaching out to invite you to attend a webinar next Wed. to learn more!
