Jefferson’s annual JAZ Tank was created to foster entrepreneurship and innovation, and engage the Jefferson community in bringing life to the products and companies that will drive the future of healthcare.
Now in its third year, JAZ Tank invited established teams with business models from across the enterprise, as well as the general public, to enter the JAZ Tank Business Track. Individuals and teams from Jefferson, Abington, Aria, Philadelphia University and Kennedy with emergent ideas for health-related products or services were welcome to submit their ideas to the JAZ Tank Opportunity Track. The 2017 challenge attracted more than 100 original concepts and seven finalists were chosen from each track. Read more about this year’s JAZ Tank on our blog!
