From 15 May to 30 September 2017, developers from all over the world can submit their Health App Solution. These submissions will be pre-selected by a MEDICA Expert Team - a top-class jury (Pre-Screening Phase in week 40/2017; Online). Those 15 developers whose Health App Solutions match best the submission criteria based on the jury's point of view, will qualify for the participation at the live pitch at MEDICA.
All Health App Solutions which are nominated for the live event will be notified beginning of October 2017 accordingly. The pitch itself happens live on stage of the MEDICA CONNCTED HEALTHCARE FORUM in hall 15, on Wednesday, 15 November from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm during MEDICA runtime including a Get-Together.
Each team has 3 minutes to pitch their Health App Solution. Another 2 minutes are reserved for the jury to place questions. After all 15 presentations the jury deliberates in the background. Finally the top 3 placements and the winner of the competition will be celebrated befittingly on site.
The most important reward certainly is the global awareness created at MEDICA as well as through MEDICA means. The best 3 teams will be offered photo and video interviews, which will be spread via all relevant media channels. In addition the solution ranked number 1 will be rewarded with EUR 2,000, the number 2 with EUR 1,000 and the number 3 with EUR 500. Finally our sponsors and media partners will grant again some incentives like gadgets, tickets or mentoring programs.
Criteria for the submission, the pre-selection and the final judgement of the jury are...

Important: Excluded from the competition are pure B2C solutions with focus on diet tips, fitness or wellness. The MEDICA Expert Team reserves the right to suspend a presenter from the competition. The respective developer team will be informed accordingly. Compliance with 'Medical Device Directive' or 'FDA Approval' is not necessary. All presenting parties need to create an account on the submission and evaluation portal F6S.
Please apply here from 15 May 2017, after you created an account accordingly; as you might be aware, creating a profile on platforms like F6S raises your visibility amongst potential investors. We thought this is a nice coincidence.
Application deadline: 30 September 2017!
