Henry Ford Innovations is changing the way hospitals leverage their resources to create new healthcare technologies and solutions. Our goal is to attract and develop solutions that address the world’s most pressing healthcare problems. We recognize that great ideas can come from anywhere; it is our job to engineer the collisions of talent and resources that bring those ideas to reality. To do this, Henry Ford Innovations introduced the Innovation Challenge platform to harness cutting edge ideas from both our employee population and the global community as a whole, to generate solutions from those working closest to the problems, and to attract innovations from the world’s leading innovators.
Current Challenge: Henry Ford Innovations: Women Entrepreneurs Challenge
Female entrepreneurs represent a huge untapped potential in the world economy, yet less than 3% of venture capital supports female-founded startups. Henry Ford Health System is inviting women entrepreneurs from across Southeast Michigan (encompassing Detroit to Lansing to Jackson, and the surrounding counties) to share their innovative, scalable, and job-creating ideas for a startup.
