Johnson & Johnson launches $600k global e-health challenge

Monday, August 28, 2017

International healthcare firm Johnson & Johnson has launched the GenH Challenge, a global social venture competition that will award a total of US$600,000 in cash prizes to locally-tailored and globally-relevant solutions to enduring health challenges.

The GenH Challenge is based on the notion that new thinking and new ways to apply everyday ideas can support those on the front lines of healthcare worldwide.

Organisations, both for-profit and non-profit, from all over the world can apply. Teams must include someone who works at the front lines of care, with Johnson & Johnson looking for organisations that are seed stage or early phase.
