Building a Digital Future for Diabetes Care
Great things happen when entrepreneurs and industry innovators work together. Join us at Cambia Grove for a panel discussion, where leadership from Novo Nordisk, and two Seattle-based startups will discuss how digital technology can be used to create a better future for those living with diabetes, and explore opportunities where startups and industry can work together to make that future a reality.
At the event, you’ll also have a chance to learn and ask questions about the Novo Nordisk Innovation Challenge, which the global company recently launched in collaboration with MATTER, Chicago’s premier health tech incubator and innovation hub.
About the challenge
More than 400 million people worldwide are living with diabetes. While there is no cure for the disease today, when diabetes is properly managed it’s possible for people to lead full and active lives. Through this challenge, Novo Nordisk aims to collaborate with startups to explore, design and co-develop digital health solutions that help people living with diabetes achieve better health. Winnings team will receive a $25,000 cash prize and a one-year opportunity to co-develop their solution with Novo Nordisk.
