Better solutions aren’t born in isolation but out of great collaboration. In the face of any crisis, we share a common vision of a better world and work together to bring that vision within reach. This collaboration has been the essence of all human innovation. This is why - now more than ever - we need to find ways to come together as innovators, leaders, and empathetic human beings. It is how we will face the uncertainties of tomorrow. It is our key to shaping a healthier world. And it is our best chance to build a better future.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Program Timeline</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><i><strong>Start now</strong></i></p><p>o&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Start ideating now on projects that solve issues across one or more of the 4 tracks.</p><p>o&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Use the <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">Conversations</a> tab to find teammates if you’ve registered as an individual.</p><p>o&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Engage with our growing list of <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">mentors</a> from technology, life sciences and healthcare for guidance and feedback on your projects.</p><p>o&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Stay tuned for regular <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">webinars</a> and virtual interactions with industry experts and technology specialists.</p><p>o&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Build your <a target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" href="">project</a> into a prototype or proof of concept stage with a working demo.</p><p><i><strong>&nbsp;</strong></i></p><p><i><strong>Submit projects by August 14th</strong></i></p><p><i>*Please note that the hackathon has been extended!
