The 2017 finalists were selected from applicants in the U.S. and internationally, based upon the following criteria: relevance, creativity and innovation, feasibility and sustainability, and organization and clarity. Proposals will be judged by a panel of stakeholders in the diabetes ecosystem, including ADA leadership, innovation incubators, corporate investment leaders, and the private insurance industry. The winning submission will receive positive alignment with the ADA and favorable introductions to ADA sponsors and partners in an effort to bring the product to market.
