bioaccel solutions challenge transparent horizontal We are now proud to announce that the 2nd Annual BioAccel Solutions Challenge is set for May 15, 2015 and Arizona’s brightest minds are hard at work developing new technologies in four challenge categories. The Solutions Challenge is an annual competition designed to better align market need, with innovation and early investment to stimulate company formation in novel medical technology. The program researches areas of critical healthcare and market need, then challenges entrepreneurs to create innovative solutions to address them. Finalists must convince at least one "Scorpion Pit" investor, during a pitch-day event, to provide up to $50,000 in private funding that BioAccel will match in additional financial support. Successful groups could then have $100,000 in proof-of-concept dollars to advance their startup's technology to address these healthcare needs.
