  • The Big C Competition Seeks Survivor Mentors

    The Big C powered by LIVESTRONG is a global competition open to entrepreneurs, trailblazers, technology whizzes, fashionistas, medical geeks, game changers and anyone with an audacious product, service or innovation that helps those facing cancer today. Ventures will compete for $140,000 in seed funding, mentoring and global exposure to a community of potential customers and investors to develop programs, services, new technology and inventions that improve cancer patients' and survivors' daily quality of life.

    Newly launched in 2014, The Big C is a one-of-a-kind competition to generate innovations that improve the daily quality of life for the 32.5 million people around the world living with cancer now.
    The final date to enter the Big C competition is May 15, 2014.

    Right now, the LIVESTRONG Foundation is looking for 150 cancer survivors to volunteer as semi-finalist mentors. Mentors will be matched with one Big C semi-finalist team to provide insight into the cancer journey. Mentors will receive access to training, and then over the course of a four week period starting May 29, they will meet with teams by phone, Skype or in-person at least once per week for up to one hour.
