Introducing The Hive 2016!

We’re delighted to introduce 25 entrepreneurs and their organizations that have been selected for The TEDMED 2016 Hive Program.

From applications enabling global, philanthropic aims to big data projects driving localized public health projects; from revolutionary tools for diagnosing cancers to disruptive therapeutics that combat aging and disease; from systems that bridge great distances to provide augmented to patient-centric solutions that bring care into the home; and many more – these organizations are working to enact meaningful change across the globe.

New this year and inspired by the question above, the Hive entrepreneurs will join our stage program in a special session titled Audacious. Through a series of creative, short-form talks, each entrepreneur will share how their ideas and innovations are shaping a healthier world.

Each organization joining us is introduced below, paired with a “What if?”question that frames the challenges they tackle and the progress they aspire to promote. We hope you are as inspired as we are by the possibility and global impact they represent.

Meet the The Hive 2016 Class!
