The winners were selected by panels of judges with expertise in each of the three focus areas – healthcare, education and sustainability.  The 15 money-winning ideas range from solutions to help manage donations in the aftermath of natural disasters, to a solution that allows healthcare providers to use smartphones to track and manage patient care, to a business simulation app designed to help students with financial literacy.   Each idea leverages Verizon’s broadband, cloud and/or wireless networks.  


The top five winners in each category are:

  • Healthcare:  Factor 14, Freenome, Portable Vision Examination, Solar Ear, Seratis
  • Education:  BridgingApps, Eden, TinyTap, WomenLEAD, Zapatilism
  • Sustainability:  Bandwagon, Good360, Mosaic, Semios, Smartster
