BACKGROUND AND EVENT DESCRIPTION:
Northeastern Maryland is home to a unique innovative ecosystem of government, industry, and academic research organizations and institutions, including U.S. Army installation, Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG). APG is a central focus to an expansive consortium of science, technology, research, and development laboratories and testing facilities that have a strong history of working collaboratively to deliver innovative solutions. Sharing knowledge through collaborating with partners across government, industry, and academia creates opportunities for innovation that not only impacts mission but gives society the tools required to move forward. Unfortunately, like many areas across our great nation, northeastern Maryland is in the midst of battling a rampant epidemic of opioid addition. The opioid crisis on our home front has impacted nearly every community and citizen to some extent.

PROVE IT! seeks to bring together teams of innovators, entrepreneurs, and skilled individuals into a creative and collaborative innovation challenge to inspire, develop, and present viable, commercializable solutions aimed at addressing specific, devastating impacts of opioid addition. Likewise, this challenge event provides the unique opportunity for teams to bring their best ideas and work with our on-site mentors - regional professionals and leaders from government, industry, and academia - to PROVE that their business solutions to prevention, treatment, and recovery can make a difference and save lives in the fight against opioid addiction. Final concepts will be pitched directly to our team of judges, comprised of notable area leaders, who can help realize YOUR solutions for the betterment of our communities!
