TXHCC Hackathons are weekend-long events that bring professionals and students alike together to tackle some of the healthcare industry’s biggest pain points. For this hackathon, Health Wildcatters will be using a virtual platform to engage and connect with other people, forming teams and finding solutions to big problems in healthcare.

Friday night will see a final round of "problem pitching" where participants choose to either pitch a problem and form a team, or listen to the pitches and join a team.  The night kicks off the weekend and is all about team formation finalization. For this event, we are planning to start pitching and team formation the entire week leading up to March 5 and 6. 

Saturday morning jumps right into morning motivation and team hacking.  You and your team will work on creating a viable solution to your chosen problem, identify if there is actually a market for your idea, develop a functional business model, address key risks, and maybe even develop a prototype!  Don't worry if you don't have experience, as there will be expert mentors ready to help you tackle any obstacle (think hospital executives, successful serial entrepreneurs, business development professionals, and more).  In addition, we will host keynote speakers (TBA) during lunch.

Saturday evening concludes with each team presenting a short PowerPoint to pitch your newly developed solution.  Judges will score each team with big cash and in-kind prizes awarded to winning teams.
