J&J innovation and DC launch “QuickFire Challenge”

The District of Columbia and its Economic Partnership (WDCEP) are joining with J&J Innovation to launch a new initiative named the “QuickFire Challenge” focused on the District.

The focus is on providing grants to start-ups working to address chronic health care challenges faced in underserved DC communities.

According to this announcement, WDCEP will make four awards from an existing grant totaling $250,000 — no less than $50,000 each — to up to four “innovators” who will be offered a home inside the new JLabs incubator on the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center campus.
