Five Years of Open Innovation at Infoway: By the Numbers

Posted on May 10, 2016 by Fraser Ratchford

The ImagineNation Challenges series is celebrating a milestone — our 5th anniversary! This year marks five years of sparking innovation and fostering a community of innovators who are passionate about improving health and health care.

To celebrate, over the coming months we’ll be publishing a series of blogs — each one aimed at highlighting a different feature of the challenges using a ‘Top 5’ theme, in keeping with our anniversary.

We shared the inspiration behind the challenges in an earlier post, and now we’re excited to share the lessons learned.

We wanted to introduce the series with a closer look at the ImagineNation Challenges. We’re proud of what our community of innovators has accomplished in such a short period of time, and we’re looking forward to what is yet to come! Below is a snapshot of the past five years, by the numbers.


This blog series was produced to help celebrate ImagineNation Challenges 5th Year Anniversary. This is the first of seven blogs. To view other blogs in this series, click here.
