About the Life Sciences Challenge


We are excited to announce the Innovation Champion of the 2020 Accenture HealthTech Innovation Challenge – Life Sciences


Thank you to all those who submitted entries for this year’s challenge.

We launched the Accenture HealthTech Challenge to tackle some of the world’s key health challenges and create a bridge into the startup ecosystem to accelerate innovation and drive growth.

Startups globally were invited to submit their application to demonstrate how they solve the below challenge statement:

How can we transform the patient experience prior, during or after care (at-home, outside of clinics)?

The selected startups received exposure to leading industry executives, accelerators and access to mentorships in addition to competing for the title of the 2020 HealthTech Innovation Challenge – Life Sciences champion.

Entry criteria

The application process took place from January 27 – February 29, 2020 and was open to all companies regardless of size, provided that they met the following criteria. Startups shortlisted were informed in November 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

You are a growth stage company where access to executives at large and established life sciences companies is critical to your business and will have a meaningful impact on your growth.

You have, at a minimum, a beta product to demonstrate and are prepared to share access to program partners under NDA (and where reasonable for no additional cost).

If selected, you are committing to travel (at your own expense) to the corresponding event date and location aligned to the challenge statement.
