About the Presentation
In this webinar, you will learn how to apply the hacking approach to your industry and domain. Based on their experience with MIT Hacking Medicine, MIT's Andrea Ippolito and Allison Yost will:
- discuss the hacking philosophy and the powerful promise of this approach;
- describe what is needed to short-circuit (and continue to short-circuit) the flaws in innovation; and
- share their mantras for hacking healthcare and medicine and reveal ways to develop mantras for innovation in your organization.
Based at the Martin Trust Center for MIT Entrepreneurship, MIT Hacking Medicine brings together stakeholders who are passionate about changing the status quo in healthcare. The "hacking" approach fosters an ecosystem of empowerment for launching disruptive healthcare solutions. To date, more than 16 hackathons have been held across four continents, resulting in more than 600 idea pitches and the formation of more than a dozen companies.
A question-and-answer period will follow the presentation. We invite you to join us.
