The C3 Prize and Ideas to Improve Cancer Care – Michael Seres, Founder of 11Health and Mark Reisenauer, Senior Vice President, Oncology Sales and Marketing at Astellas 

The C3 Prize was created to uncover new tools and resources that can potentially help patients with cancer, their caregivers and loved ones live better today. More specifically, the C3 Prize seeks submissions in four areas where patients living with cancer and the cancer community face daily challenges: navigating the health care system, adhering to complex medical care requirements, coordinating care and surviving life post-treatment. Astellas Oncology, along with Robert Herjavec, star of ABC’s Emmy Award-winning hit television show Shark Tank, Stanford Medicine X and MATTER, launched the C3 Prize to give patients and caregivers an opportunity to pursue new ideas and solutions that can make a difference in the lives of patients with cancer, their loved ones and those who care for them. Entries will be accepted through August 8, followed by a live pitch for five finalists at Stanford Medicine X to a panel of judges including Robert Herjavec. From there, three winners will be awarded grants totaling $100,000, mentorship from Astellas and membership to healthcare technology incubator MATTER to bring their ideas to life.
