NEW: Over the last two months, while we have received exceptional Innovation Challenge applications, highlighting the impressive ingenuity and creativity among pre-commercialization start-ups; we also receive feedback about the Innovation Challenge Eligibility Requirements.

  • Any company in the pre-commercialization stage (regardless of their date of incorporation) can participate.
  • We extended the deadline to July 17, 2024.

About the HRX 2024 Pitch Competition

The HRX Pitch Competition offers innovators a unique platform to present their groundbreaking products, services, and solutions to a distinguished panel of judges and potential investors. Participants have the chance to showcase their offerings to healthcare professionals, investors, and fellow entrepreneurs, all while competing for cash prizes. This competition is open to pre-commercialization companies in the cardiovascular field.


The top five teams selected will compete on the HRX Main Stage. Each team will have 10 minutes to creatively pitch their innovative idea, followed by five minutes to field questions from judges and attendees.

Judges will evaluate and offer immediate feedback based on novelty, feasibility, the ability to scale to market, and the impact on cardiovascular care.

  • 1st place: $30,000
  • 2nd place: $15,000
  • People‚Äôs Choice (audience selected): $10,000 

Top performers will receive recognition, networking opportunities, and valuable support to advance their business. 

To be eligible for the HRX Pitch Competition, a startup company must be a registered, formative-stage business entity that can enter into an investment agreement, such as a corporation or limited liability company (LLC), that meets the following criteria:
