Congratulations To The Top 10 Candidates of our Urban Business Storytelling Competition
In case you missed it! Recently, the American Heart Association launched a search for the best and brightest innovators around the country at the intersection of tech and health through the EmPOWERED To Serve™ Urban Business Storytelling Competition. Fueled by the excitement of discovering groundbreaking solutions to address the Social Determinants of Health on our quest to solve for cardiovascular disease and stroke, we asked and you responded. Thanks to each of you who took the time to either enter the competition, or simply share the opportunity with others.
With close to 130 submissions, from coast-to-coast, it is with great excitement that we share, your top 10 candidates and a sneak peek at their business models. They will compete in Washington, D.C. at the EmPOWERED to Serve Awards Dinner.
Tune in to the livestream of the competition on Tuesday, October 17th at 8:00 p.m. ET to hear the full presentations and meet your top 3 candidates. Reserve your spot to join us via livestream by grabbing your free ticket on Eventbrite. You don’t want to miss this!
