The Assistive Tech Challenge is a pitch competition to facilitate greater independence for individuals with disabilities and the daily challenges they face. Teams compete for prize money to advance their ideas about ways to alleviate barriers to employment, reduce the need for or ease the demands of care providers, help develop social skills to better enable people with and without disabilities to interact and cultivate meaningful relationships, and improve access to the community through public infrastructure.
Two orientation sessions have been set up to provide you an opportunity to learn more about the Assistive Tech Challenge, connect with disability subject matter experts, and explore the spaces in which you might be interested in developing a new product or service.
The first orientation session will be held in downtown Rochester at the Mayo Clinic Business Accelerator on Thursday, September 13, 2018 from 5-6:30 p.m. The second will be held on Friday, September 14, 2018 from 2-4 p.m. at the Microsoft Store at Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota
We hope you arrive curious – and leave inspired.
