The SHRS innovation challenge is an opportunity for faculty, staff, and students to translate their ideas and developments, originating in our labs and classrooms, into rehabilitation products and services that have real impact."
First Gear provided me with a framework within which to understand a new vocabulary related to product discovery, pitching ideas, and moving a product to market. First Gear also introduced me to a group of people dedicated to assisting me on this journey who I never even knew existed at Pitt. It was like I found a hidden world at Pitt that couldn't wait to help me navigate unchartered waters!"
The SHRS Innovation Challenge is open to faculty and staff working on University of Pittsburgh intellectual property in the School of the Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. Students are welcome to participate on teams led by a faculty member.
The Challenge is done in conjunction with the First Gear NSF I-Corps Program.
