Innovation Challenge in MS: invitation & recs

Post by lyfebulb » Wed Mar 13, 2019 8:24 am

Hi everyone!

Our company, Lyfebulb, is hosting an Innovation Challenge in MS in partnership with Celgene and we think many members of this community would be eligible to apply.

We think you also have valuable feedback on companies to recommend - we are seeking early stage companies/entrepreneurs that are providing solutions to those affected by MS and would love your recommendations on applicants.

About the Challenge:
  • The Challenge is open to innovators working on solutions, beyond therapy, to help address either challenges faced by people with MS in their daily lives, or address an unmet need that could potentially improve outcomes and experiences for both people with MS and their support partners
    The applicant (1 person) must have a personal connection to MS: affected by MS as a patient, loved one, or support partner
    Finalists will receive an expense-paid trip to Celgene headquarters in Summit, New Jersey in June, where they will collaborate and compete with other MS-focused startups over a two-day gathering
    The winning company will receive a $25,000 monetary grant
    The competition is free to enter and Lyfebulb/Celgene ask for no exclusivity. The only commitment is to attend the live Challenge event in Summit, New Jersey, if chosen as a finalist
    The application takes approximately 30 minutes to complete

Applications close on April 12, at 11:59 pm EDT.
