On Wednesday evening we had the chance to return to Blueprint Health HQ for the Sanofi-sponsored contest event called Data Design Diabetes Demo Day (brought to you DDAVP). Medgadget spoke with some of the judges last month about the challenges of diabetes care, the goals of DDDemo day, and their choices for the five semi-finalists.
We’ll be profiling each of the five companies on Medgadget in the coming days. You can also watch each pitch and vote on who you think should win until May 23.
Two finalists will emerge, and an ultimate winner is selected in July. Remember, Ginger.io, the winner of DDDemoDay in 2011, is doing well. A neat thing about this contest is the innovators showcased above keep all their IP, and prize money will not dilute ownership.
Follow the contest along on Twitter, using hashtag #DDDemoDay.
