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.
