Bounce Health Innovation, the life sciences support group in Newfoundland and Labrador, will hold its second annual Hacking Health St. John’s Hackathon on March 1-3.

Like Startup Weekend, Hacking Health is an international organization that brings together people for a single weekend with the aim of producing healthcare innovations in less than three days.

The event will host healthcare professionals and designers, developers, innovators, and entrepreneurs on Friday, March 1. They will divide into teams and see which group can come up with the best product by Sunday evening.

The event last year gave momentum to the work of Bounce Health Innovation, which is a collaborative group that promotes startups that are working on biotech and life sciences ventures. It has so far helped to nurture several such startups.

The Hackathon will take place at the Faculty of Medicine at Memorial University. You can buy tickets here.
