Why Co.Create?

There is a currently a resource gap that students innovating in healthcare must overcome. While some ideas are potentially revolutionary, many of these solutions never ultimately receive funding, or are implemented in a hospital. We think there are two key reasons why this occurs:

  1. Clinical and end-user input is not provided early enough in the process, and
  2. There is a lack of sustained engagement for great ideas that emerge from healthcare hackathons, business plan competitions, etc.

Co.Create hopes to fill the currently-existing resource gap for student healthcare entrepreneurs.
