Hello fellow game-changers, thinkerers and tinkerers!

We are on the prowl for 3 courageous healthcare innovators to pitch their ideas in Lion’s Lair, one of the highlights of our annual conference CHI INNOVATE 2020, which is a webinar this year! If you have a great new idea, gadget or service that you think will be appreciated and devoured by hungry lions in our industry, we want to hear from you! This year, the Lion’s Lair theme is “Breaking Walls – Delivering Care in an Outbreak”.

In the midst of a pandemic, continuity of care for the general population cannot be neglected, and this is even more so for the frail and vulnerable. We are looking for innovations, large or small, that would enable continued, timely and optimal delivery of care despite the various restrictions imposed in these trying times. We look forward to hearing from you on how you can innovate to provide care during this period!

At the end of it all, one victor will walk away with S$5,000 in cash, plus mentorship from CHI’s network of healthcare practitioners. Above all, you will get the opportunity to observe and understand how captains of industry dissect and devour (or discard) innovations that come their way.

Are You Game Enough?

To participate, send us a 500-word pitch on your innovation which you believe can change or improve healthcare delivery in times of an outbreak. Your proposal can range from a hand-made device to a major system change…the sky’s the limit!

On 30 July 2020, the top 3 contestants selected beforehand will get a chance to present their ideas to our online audience and a panel of 4 “Lions”, each one a senior member of industry. The Lions will judge you based on how innovative, impactful and feasible your project is. You will only have a few minutes to stun everyone with your idea and win over the Lions and the audience.
