Connect To End Cancer aims to identify, showcase and unite innovators, ideas and health technology providing transformational cancer care to patients around the world.
Innovators from around the world are invited to submit their early stage ideas and companies for connection to institutions that can put accepted ideas into action. All submissions must be received by February 10th in order to be considered. Exceptional solutions will be showcased from the stage in Austin.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, in partnership with the AT&T Connected Health Foundry, will launch Connect to End Cancer at the 2017 SXSW Interactive Festival.
The event will provide education, exposure and potential development support to entrepreneurs and encourage collaboration among innovators, industry executives, venture capitalists, celebrities, philanthropists and SXSW Interactive attendees who share MD Anderson and AT&T Foundry’s commitment to Making Cancer History®.

We’re working to invest in and develop innovative commercial health tech opportunities aimed at eliminating cancer worldwide. We want to hear from companies who offer unique ways to diagnose, treat, manage and prevent cancer for patients all over the world.
