The Winning Pitch Challenge helps accelerate the pace of innovation in ophthalmology by providing ophthalmologists with the tools and assistance they need to transform their novel ideas for improvements in patient care into functioning prototypes ready for early-stage studies. To that end, WPC provides access to key educational resources, highly experienced business and innovation mentors, networking opportunities, andA  key exposure to financial resources. Additionally, mentors help participants overcome critical early-stage obstacles, such as securing intellectual property, developing a working version of the product, identifying a team and designing early stage studies. "Many times, the people with the best ideas are the ones closest to the work. We are proud of our colleagues who have ideas and need a little help getting their idea off the ground. That's what the Winning Pitch is all about," stated John Pollack, MD.
