Spring 2020 Kickoff Session

    Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 6:00 PM until 7:30 PMEastern Daylight Time

    The Health Innovation Consortium (HIC) and the VCU da Vinci Center for Innovation have partnered to create a series of healthcare sprints. The groups had planned to launch a general sprint for Spring 2020 and have pivoted the focus to be on current challenges and opportunities. Driven by the ambiguity and uncertainty we face during this time, we choose to be actionable and invite all VCU students to join this sprint to explore solutions related to COVID-19 through healthcare and innovation. 

    • This is a completely virtual Sprint. This will mean that students from the university who are currently working from anywhere can participate fully in the Sprint. This is new for all of us, so it will flex our capabilities and comfort, but we believe will offer an invaluable learning opportunity.
    • The focus of the sprint will be fully on solutions related to COVID-19. We will work with existing concepts in the Health Innovation Consortium.

    Award Amount

    $1000/person with a limit of $5,000/team - potential for multiple groups as winners.

    Who can participate?

    Participation is open to all students across VCU: undergraduate and graduate students.

    Registration is no longer available because the registration deadline has passed.
