One of the teams that formed at our 2019 Medical Solutions hackathon, Mobility Innovators, made it into the GW New Venture Competition finals. They were joined by Caitlyn Pratt, who’s venture was launched following a trial-run of the George Hacks Innovators in Action program. Caitlyn’s venture, called Takin’ it Easy, focuses on medication management through an automatic pill dispensary system.

Takin’ it Easy has a working prototype and will be competing in the final round of the New Venture Competition this Thursday. After developing a more refined prototype, Ms. Pratt’s team hopes to launch a pilot program with their local Veteran Affairs contacts, previously established through George Hacks, before launching a Kickstarter campaign.
