Innovators Wanted to Help Create the Healthiest Generation

July 14, 2017

Johnson and Johnson is putting out a call for all entrepreneurs and innovators who have ideas on how to create the healthiest generation. The social venture competition, the GenH Challenge, is based on the idea that new ways of thinking and problem solving are key to helping support front-line health care efforts around the world.

Entrepreneurs participating in the challenge will work to create locally-tailored solutions for enduring health challenges in different parts of the world. From non-profits to for-profits, the challenge is looking for organizations at the seed or early stage that can help solve everyday health problems.

“A great idea can and often does come from anyone, anywhere in the world,” said Alex Gorsky, chairman and CEO of Johnson and Johnson. “By combining your ingenuity with our expertise, we can realize the promise of the healthiest generation, GenH.”

The registration deadline is October 4 and the application deadline is October 18. Applications will then be reviewed by peers, Johnson and Johnson staff, and a panel of judges. Finalists will compete in a pitch competition in January 2018 and the winner will be awarded $250,000.

Innovators and organizations interested in competing in the GenH Challenge can learn more and apply here.
