2017 Driving Digital Challenge

Driving Digital Challenge 2017

TSA are inviting micro businesses[1] who have an innovative digital product to enter a competition which will see the winning entrants present at the International Technology Enabled Care Conference 2017.

The International Technology Enabled Care Conference is the largest conference of its type in the world and last year attracted over 700 delegates comprising of commissioners from health, housing and social care.

We are deliberately keeping entry criteria light but we do want to see entrants address how their digital product or service:

  • Solves a problem in an innovative way
  • Brings value to the end user
  • Enables greater independence and quality of life

Challenge Background

TSA are a well-established and recognised leader in the area of Technology Enabled Care. This year we want to continue our search for new organisations and innovative approaches into the marketplace and are aiming to widen their focus to the broader Technology Enabled Care (TEC) agenda.


The Challenge

Please send us a video-pitch with a maximum duration of 3 minutes. Submissions will be accepted by emailing a link to the video to awards@TSA-Voice.org.uk. Video files can also be sent to us using https://www.wetransfer.com.

Your video submission must explain the problem you are addressing and how the solution you have developed solves this problem, what impact has it had so far and how much traction has your solution generated to date, we would like to know more about:

♦  Quick overview of the product or service you are selling

♦  What problem is it solving & why is this innovative?

♦  Who is the target audience for your product?

♦  How it brings value to the end user (Bonus points if you can provide evidence of impact)

♦  How it enables greater independence and quality of life

♦  Why is it better than any other current approach to solving this problem?

♦  Why it’s better than other products/services currently on the market

How you choose to present this in your video is completely up to you, you’re not going to be judged on the quality of the video, but it’s important that we can clearly understand what you’re saying. We will not consider videos with poor audio quality.

Video entries may be shared publically to promote your products and the upcoming TSA conference.

The Award

3 Shortlisted companies will be invited to present in the Innovation Zone at the 2017 International Technology Enabled Care Conference. Following the pitch shortlisted companies will be asked to join a question & answer panel, allowing the judging panel a final opportunity to decide on a winner.
