The healthcare field has a problem of stark omission: it provides no meaningful incentive programs for promising young healthcare entrepreneurs.

It’s certainly not a problem in other industries. In myriad cases, philanthropists use cold, hard cash to lure smart, new entrepreneurs into the field. Consider these incentives:

  • The Google Lunar X Prize offers $30 million to the first privately funded team to land a robot on the moon.
  • The Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X Challenge offers $1 million to the team that is most successful at cleaning up oil spills.
  • The Progressive Insurance Automotive X Prize awarded $10 million to three teams that built cars achieving 100 miles per gallon in real world driving.
