2016 DevelopmentXChange is Near!

The sixth annual DevelopmentXChange is next week!
The annual DevelopmentXChange challenges global problem-solvers, entrepreneurs, scientists, and innovators to develop and scale their transformational solutions to improve maternal and newborn survival and address the needs of the poorest and hardest-to-reach communities around the world. After receiving roughly 650 applications, this culminating event concludes a five-month review process where 50 finalists will join 54 current Saving Lives at Birth grantees.  
The format includes an innovator pitch competition to investors and potential partners, private curated 1:1 partnering and mentoring meetings, as well as a public Innovation Marketplace of the most cutting-edge maternal and newborn life-saving innovations.  
Please join us on Thursday, July 28, 2016 from 11:30-6:00 to learn from and be inspired by these innovators!
