Have your idea funded for “GenH”


Congratulations on your participation in Nexus Maximus. It was inspiring to see so many clever solutions developed by you and your fellow participants — and it’s exactly this sort of creative, people-centered thinking that we will need to tackle the world’s greatest challenge.

I wanted to share some more information about how YOU could win up to $250,000 to have your idea funded, through Johnson & Johnson’s global, social innovation competition – the GenH Challenge.

You can turn your Nexus Maximus idea into a real-life social enterprise to improve lives around the world – keep reading to learn more!

The GenH Challenge is a global social venture competition seeking new ideas to address enduring health challenges. The Challenge will award six teams up to $250,000 USD from a $1 million USD prize purse, including capacity building and support from experts in the Johnson & Johnson network.

We are looking for everyday innovations from innovators, students, health care workers, and entrepreneurs –and your project to help refugees and displaced populations could make an excellent submission for the GenH Challenge.

We encourage you to check out the competition website at www.GenHChallenge.com to complete the quick registration. The registration deadline is quickly approaching as you must complete both steps of registration by next Wednesday, October 4 at 5:00 PM Eastern Time. Registration is required to submit an application. You will then have two additional weeks to complete your online application. The submission deadline is Wednesday, October 18 at 5:00 PM Eastern Time.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at questions@GenHChallenge.com.

Again, congratulations on your incredible work, and we hope to see your entry to the GenH Challenge!
