The OHSU Invent-a-thon Post-Hack is a business plan competition that is open to all 49 teams that participated in the 2020 inaugural OHSU Invent-a-thon. Teams have been working hard since October to advance their projects, in many cases with support from our partners. We are excited to help highlight their progress and award follow-on funding for the most promising technologies.
From initial applications (teams, see the link below), we will select between six to eight teams that demonstrate the greatest chance of readiness for funding at this point in time. Participating teams will give a 7-min pitch to a panel of investors to compete for $40,000 in follow on funding, plus in-kind support.
1st place: $20,000 2nd place: $15,000 3rd place: $5,000
In addition to these cash prizes, a growing number of investor groups are partnering with us to provide follow-on support and additional prizes for teams. These investment partners include: AngelMD, Elevate Capital, Angel Capital Association, Portland Seed Fund, Aventurine, and TiE Oregon. We also anticipate other healthcare partners to observe the Post-Hack as they scout for future investment opportunities.
