Registration is open for the 2021 Bear Institute PACK

The first annual Bear Institute Pediatric Accelerator Challenge for Kids (PACK)  is bringing together entrepreneurs, pediatric healthcare providers and administrators, industry experts, and investors to help close the immense innovation gap in children’s digital health.

Bear Institute PACK is open to college student teams with an innovative digital health solution that would benefit kids. College student teams will have the opportunity to get their solution in front of pediatric healthcare providers and administrators from children’s hospitals and practices across the U.S.

How it Works: Student teams will submit an application with a short video and slide deck highlighting their solution. These submissions will be reviewed by pediatric providers and administrators, who will help select the college team winner. The college team winner will be recognized at Bear Institute PACK’s live virtual event on 26 August  2021. College student teams are competing for $15K in prize money!
