Disruptive Innovations in Health
Changemakers is looking for entrepreneurs both within and outside of the health care field with ideas for new products, services, technologies, business models that enable consumers to manage health and receive care in ways that are more affordable, accessible, simple and convenient.

The unique competition model attracts solutions from social entrepreneurs from around the globe. Innovators submit their ideas and the Changemakers online community provides feedback on the problem and proposed solutions throughout the competition. This interactive process is designed not only to catalyze action on important issues but also to connect participants’ solutions with key decision-makers, investors, and health and social service providers.

Changemakers global network will select three winners from anywhere in the world—each of whom will receive a $5,000 cash prize. In addition, RWJF’s Pioneer Portfolio will review competition entries and may award up to $5 million to support projects (restricted to U.S. organizations) that show potential to go to scale.
