The judges will evaluate submissions that best achieve the contest’s theme of “increasing healthy engagement in people with diabetes.” Applicants will be divided into two categories based on number of employees. Our “Up and Coming” category will include companies with less than 10 employees, and our “Enterprise” category will include companies with 10 or more employees.
Judges will evaluate each submission based on the following criteria:
- Team Potential
- Market Potential
The panel of 6 judges will include a wide range of stakeholders including patients, providers, industry representatives, software developers, and design experts.
Judges will select up to three finalists in each of the “Up and Coming” and “Enterprise” categories from the pool of submissions. Finalists will be featured on our website and listed in the program at the Digital Diabetes Congress, May 14-15, 2019. Among the finalists, one winner from each category will be awarded the winner of the DDC App Contest.
One winner from each category (“Up and Coming” and “Enterprise”) will be selected to demo their app in front of hundreds of industry, patient, and clinician diabetes stakeholders at the Digital Diabetes Congress in San Francisco, May 14-15, 2019.
