Veterans Lead QuickFire Challenge Series

Submission deadline: September 17, 2021

From Johnson & Johnson:

“A 2021 report by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services found that Veterans are significantly more likely to develop multiple chronic health conditions in their lifetime like hypertension, arthritis, and cancer compared to non-Veterans. [1] To help treat wounded warriors and keep the military community healthy, we feel we must seek to identify and advance solutions with the potential to help address their medical needs.

“To that end, Johnson & Johnson Innovation, together with Johnson & Johnson Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, is proud to continue the Veterans Lead QuickFire Challenge series. Innovators are invited to submit potentially ground-breaking ideas that aim to directly address the health care needs of the military community including cardiovascular disease [2], kidney disease [3], oncology [4], orthopedic and musculoskeletal disease [5], physical trauma management [6], respiratory health [7], and vision loss. [8]

“The innovator(s) with the best idea, technology, or potential solution can receive grant funding from up to a total of $250,000, access to the Johnson & Johnson Innovation – JLABS ecosystem, and mentorship from experts across the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies*.
