[Update: 30 Nov 2011] Voting has now closed
Thanks to everyone who voted and campaigned. Tweets and visits to the website have been at an all time high over the last couple of weeks. We did our best.
Back in August we were encouraged by supporters to enter the Making More Health competition so we did along with more than 470 others from 82 countries. On 9 November 2011 the 13 finalists were announced and ColaLife was amongst them. The public is now invited to vote to determine the competition’s three winners, who will each receive a $10,000 (US) cash prize to help further their idea.
According to the organisers – Ashoka Changemakers and Boehringer Ingelheim – the finalists represent the most innovative and promising solutions from around the globe that are transforming the field of health. Finalists were selected by the competition’s panel of expert judges, which included Aman Bhandari of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Carol A. Dahl, executive director of The Lemelson Foundation, and Andreas Barner, Chairman of the Board of Managing Directors for Boehringer Ingelheim.
The full list of finalists are listed here.
