ASU’s Obesity Solutions will be inviting entries to the Obesity Solutions Funding Challenge starting on February 1, 2013. The goal of the challenge is to inspire teams from all different backgrounds to tackle the obesity problem from a variety of different perspectives; successful solutions could range from environmental design changes, to food policy advocacy, to health and wellness intervention programs.
The challenge gives anyone affiliated with ASU – students, faculty, staff and alumni – the opportunity to win up to $10,000 in seed funding to help get their obesity solution off the ground, along with office space, mentoring and access to investors.
Obesity Solutions will be hosting a Funding Challenge kick-off event on January 31, 3–5 p.m., at Changemaker Central in the Memorial Union on the Tempe campus, for anyone who is interested in the challenge.
