Round 6 Innovators

In its sixth round, 49 promising finalists from nearly 650 applications came together to compete in the final stage of the 2016 Saving Lives at Birth Grand Challenge.  The finalists gathered at the DevelopmentXChange in Washington DC, from July 26-28.  There, they learned from each other, interacted with potential collaborators, and met technical advisors in a number of discussion groups and one-on-one meetings designed to facilitate further innovation and impact.

The partners nominated 2 transition to scale, 7 validation, and 7 seed applicants for award.
