VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation is excited to announce a brand new event for 2018 – the inaugural Innovators’ Challenge. The event will bring together the brightest and most promising entrepreneurs and innovators from across BC, including those in biotech, life sciences and high tech industries. Together, they will raise funds in support of Vancouver Coastal Health’s innovation agenda, while being given rare, early access to tomorrow’s breakthrough medical device.
The evening will start with a reception, providing an opportunity for attendees to mingle with like-minded innovators with a passion for health care. Guests will then be led into an auditorium to witness presentations from leading BC-based clinician scientists who will each showcase an idea for an innovative medical device. Guests can then make important philanthropic donations to help propel these ideas forward knowing they are having a direct impact on the health of British Columbians. They will then have the opportunity to meet the presenters and their teams after the event, to learn more about the vital role that innovation plays in transforming health care across the province.
