MaRS Procurement by Co-Design Pitch Day
Hosted by MaRS Discovery District

On July 20, watch five teams of health innovators pitch exciting new technologies as they compete for a pool of $50,000 in grant awards.

The Pitch Day is the concluding event for the MaRS Innovation Partnership: Procurement by Co-design program. The innovators will share how they used the ground-breaking co-design method to understand and solve health care delivery challenges, including:

  • improving lower limb prosthetic fittings and rehabilitation using 3D printed sockets
  • automating pathology slide archiving and retrieval to save time and prevent loss
  • preventing patient falls using custom algorithms in acute care
  • creating a seamless journey for hospital visitors through digital wayfinding
  • supercharging an innovative alternate-level-of-care program through a digital platform to support clinicians and caregivers

The teams will pitch live on stage to a panel of judges, demonstrating their solution, highlighting its results and sharing thoughts on their journey through the co-design process and plans for getting their technology adopted.
