Accelerating Wireless Innovation for Health and Wellness

Wireless technology is at the heart of our modern lives, powering our economy and defining how we connect to one another. From the doctors providing remote care to homebound and rural patients to everyday individuals tracking their health and fitness through wearables, wireless reveals new opportunities to change the way we work, communicate and live.

Through Catalyst, CTIA Wireless Foundation celebrates and accelerates the work of innovators who are tackling our society’s most pressing health and wellness challenges. Catalyst is a competitive grants program supporting wireless innovations from early-stage social entrepreneurs.

Catalyst winners use the power of wireless to create innovative, compassionate solutions to increase access to personalized care and strengthen human connection. Catalyst seeks to push the boundaries of what is possible through wireless technology.

In its inaugural year, Catalyst received applications from innovators across the country that are harnessing the power of wireless for uses such as IoT devices, remote healthcare, wearables and mobile apps to solve real problems. After a first round, six semifinalists submitted additional application materials, and the 2020 Catalyst Finalists were selected by the team of 2020 Advisors.

The 2020 Winners –  Objective Zero Foundation, MindRight Health and Pilleve – are delivering wireless-enabled innovations for veteran and teen mental health and opioid addictions, and received grants totaling $175,000.

Through these grants, CTIA Wireless Foundation is catalyzing the ability of innovators to develop new ways to equip American communities with the tools to improve health and wellness.
