We would like to thank everybody for your valuable contribution to the success of the fist Brain Catalyst hackathon. The Brain Catalyst is a co-design between Roche, Startups, NGOs & Patients to solve the biggest helathcare challenges.

We received 54 challenges for the hackathon. Together with you we co-designed together with startups, entrepreneurs, and patients impressive solutions in a very short amount of time.

The diverse audience from across 101 countries, including 128 partners/startup companies, contributed to the success of the summit.

We want to thank you for your understanding, support and energy to overcome the technical obstacles. Despite the technical challenges, you managed to deliver incredible outcomes on the final pitching videos. We received 26 finalized hackathon final pitch videos that really impressed us, especially created in a virtual setting.
