About Us

Hackovate Health is a health-focused innovation competition hosted by H&R Block and Think Big Partners. The competition is designed to identify innovative mobile, online, social and other applications that help consumers navigate the new healthcare landscape and the Affordable Care Act. Tech entrepreneurs, startups, innovators, healthcare professionals and other teams from around the world were encouraged to compete in the three-month long competition, which has culminated in H&R Block and screening judges identifying 10 teams to convene in Kansas City in February to turn their promising ideas into new companies. The Hackovate process involves coaching and mentoring from business, policy and investor community leaders in the entrepreneurship and healthcare arenas.
