We seek scalable innovations and business ideas that will support our community’s recovery from the pandemic. Some examples include, but are not limited to:
A solution that addresses health equity and the disproportionate impact that COVID-19 had on communities that experience health disparities. The COVID-19 pandemic exposed Long Island’s racial and socioeconomic disparities and communities that have less resources experienced more devastating health outcomes.
An innovation for healthcare facilities to support their ability to handle an influx of patients.
Ensuring workplace protection or reimaging workspaces.
A solution that supports people or businesses who are impacted by the economic challenges presented by the pandemic.
A solution that could be implemented on Hofstra’s campus and in our community.
Mentorship is available during and after the Proposal period. If you are interested in mentorship with developing your proposal, please email [email protected]
