10.10.10 Health 2016: Ten Entrepreneurs, Ten Days, Ten Wicked Problems [Photos]

DENVER, CO – For ten days in June, Denver-based business generator 10.10.10 encouraged ten entrepreneurs from across the country to develop market-driven solutions to some of the healthcare system’s toughest problems. On June 30th, the entrepreneurs in this year’s program revealed their solutions, which included an incubator that simulates the presence of an infant’s mother, a smart home solution for people living with Alzheimer’s, and an artificially intelligent companion for the elderly.

10.10.10 Health 2016 was the culmination of months of preparation involving hundreds of volunteers. Throughout the entire process, CyberMed News was there to cover it.
