VHA Breaking Boundaries Collaboration Challenge

Hosted by VHA Innovation Ecosystem and Founder Institute, the Breaking Boundaries Collaboration Challenge is a pitch competition in which innovators will have the opportunity to collaborate with the VA to advance their solution to the next stage of development.

Twenty healthcare innovators, non-profits, entrepreneurs, start-ups, or academic affiliates at the earliest stages of solution design and development will be invited to pitch to VHA IE and VHA Innovators Network (iNET) site leadership and staff throughout the country. The goal is advancing innovative healthcare solutions that ultimately change the lives of Veterans and the general public.

Pitch applications are accepted June 9-July 30, 2021. Pitches take place August 26 with the Breaking Boundaries: Co-Designing for Tomorrow panel discussion and Challenge winners announced August 27. Winners will also be invited to demo progress at iEX in October 2021.
