BOSTON, July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Boston Children's Hospital's Global Pediatric Summit + Awards, Taking on Tomorrow (#PedInno14), will feature an "Innovation Tank" – a forum designed to give pediatric health care innovators an opportunity to pitch their business or product solution to a panel of acclaimed judges for consideration of funding and feedback on how to accelerate the innovation and bring it to market.

The competition, occurring the morning of Friday, October 31, will be moderated by Daymond John of ABC's Shark Tank and sponsored by Philips Healthcare. Judges include: Bob Davis, MBA, General Partner, Highland Capital Partners; Santo Politi, MBA, Founder and General Partner, Spark Capital; Ivan Salgo, MD, Senior Director, Cardiology, Philips Healthcare; Halle Tecco, MBA, Founder and Managing Director, Rock Health; and Leonard Zon, MD, Founder and Director of the Stem Cell Program at Boston Children's. The panel of business-savvy judges will consider pitches and determine how to award $30,000 in sponsored funds among the presenters.
