Selected finalists will receive international recognition and compete for grants totaling $200,000 to support the development and commercialization of their new product, technology, or therapeutic concept. As many as six finalists will be selected to present at the 2019 Anti-Epileptic Drug & Device Trials, May 22-24, 2019, in Miami. To be eligible, applicants must demonstrate an ability to move the proposed plan to completion, showing how the prize can accelerate any step along the path to market.
