About: Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic, progressive, irreversible, unpredictable and incurable disease that kills the same number of people every year as breast cancer. Yet, IPF remains an unknown disease that receives little attention resulting in a lack of innovative solutions, research, patient resources, and funding that is desperately needed. But with Three Lakes Partners, all that changes now. Collaboration is at the heart of Three Lakes Partner’s mission, and is our engine. Three Lakes Partners is attacking IPF from all sides: diagnosis, treatment, patient quality of life, research, and funding all by engaging the most innovative, aggressive, and experienced partners in their fight against IPF. We will continue to seek out across the globe, partners who share our vision, our passion, and our mission. We have no hidden agenda. We are laser focused on finding a cure to this horrible disease.
What’s your big idea? Together, let’s breathe new life into IPF. Award a total purse of $1,000,000 for big ideas to improve quality of life for IPF patients and their caregivers. Three Lakes Partners has joined forces with three world-class organizations to collaborate on the $1,000,000 IPF Catalyst Challenge: MATTER, a healthcare technology incubator and innovation hub; IDEO, an award-winning global design and innovation consultancy; and Common Pool, renowned for creating competitions to solve the world’s most challenging problems.
